Raised Voices: Powering Women in Film

Archive programme from the National Library of Scotland

Presented and curated by Ruth Washbrook


This programme of archive films from Scotland’s Moving Image Archive celebrates women’s achievements and pioneering spirit.  From suffragette surgeons and nurses, intrepid Highland postwomen, arctic dog-sled journeys to keep fit exercises for the correct posture.  Also featured are films made by renowned Scottish filmmakers, Margaret Tait and Jenny Gilbertson and a glimpse into women film technicians at work.  Come and experience women’s contribution to Scottish history with some remarkable achievements and join us for a blether afterwards about women who have inspired you.

This project is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Women’s Histories.
