Where are the Women? Moving images of women's lives over the past 100 years

2:00pm to 4:00pm, Elvet Riverside 142

What About the Women?
Moving images of women's lives over the past 100 years introduced by Julie Ballands from North East Film Archive and Prof Catherine Donovan, Dept Sociology. Be astonished, mesmerized, entertained or enraged by footage that reflects how women have been portrayed on film in our regional archive collections. Taken from non-fiction material; from local advertising companies, amateur and television footage recording life across the North East over the past 100 years, the films reflect how women have been represented on screen over the decades – sometimes powerfully, but sometimes slipping into the stereotypical sexist clichés of the times.
