Brazen Hussies Onwards and Upwards

Watch the trailer for Brazen Hussies, a documentary film about Women’s Liberation in Australia which is currently in production. For some of us, it’s a trip down memory lane; for others, it’s an eye opener.

The producers need help to make sure the film is completed. A campaign is underway with the goal of raising $100K in public donations to supplement the overall production budget of $950K and any contribution you can make will be gratefully received. Here’s a link to the donation page. Donations are tax deductible.

This film uncovers a rich history of bold women who kick-started the Women’s Liberation Movement in Australia in the late 1960s and 1970s. In addition, it is being crafted by a team of exemplary female filmmakers.

Brazen Hussies proudly boasts an all-female filmmaking team, including: Writer/Director Catherine Dwyer, Producers Philippa Campey (Bastardy, murundak: Songs Of Freedom) and Andrea Foxworthy (On Her Shoulders, Indonesia Calling: Joris Ivens In Australia), Executive Producer Sue Maslin (The Dressmaker, Japanese Story, Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible), Consultant Larissa Behrendt, and Script Editor Annette Blonski.

There are many ways to support this project. Share the love or donate if you can.
