Suffragettes on Film – Dr Adity Singh
Sun 14th October 5:00pm
Tickets have gone off sale at SIV but are available on the venue on the day (subject to availability)
An exploration of representations of rebel women in the cinema of the time including Urban Gad’s Die Suffragette. A mirror of its times, early cinema reflects the myriad positions that existed in society on the controversial issue of female suffrage. Cinematic depictions of women worked as a powerful propaganda tool and ranged from sensitive portrayals of women and their struggle to crude anti-feminist humour.
