Shelley and her extraordinary team of artists spent delicate time with the community to research and explore the restrictions that still exist living as a woman in the 21st century. The aim was to acknowledge these restrictions and resist them with artistic responses rooted in movement,  using art as a political platform to empower – not just the 50 women that belonged in a space that was once not made for them, but the audiences too, that will witness and engage in this positive, political work.

This beautiful feminist film will celebrate how far we have come, yet also remind us of the distance we still have to go to reach global equality.

​”1907″ was really “not that long ago”
