The Oct-Nov 2015 British First Film Festival includes pre-screening of the new movie "Suffragette" due for release on Boxing Day.  This is your opportunity to be one of the first to view this compelling movie set in the UK before it is released on 26th December 2015.  Check details for your city.

I was lucky enough to share with other 21st Century Suffragettes of Perth at a special screening on Wednesday.  The movie is both powerful and humbling but most of all an inspiration to continue the work done by these dis-empowered yet stoic and feisty women who paved the way for many of the benefits we enjoy today. Don't miss it!

With a powerful ensemble cast including Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep, this intense drama tracks the early feminist movement in the fight for the right to vote in Britain. Suffragette is a term used to describe members of women’s organisation movements for voting rights, and this is the first real film to honour the extraordinary heroines who risked everything for equality at the turn of the last century.
