Synopsis

BRAZEN HUSSIES is a feature documentary that shows the moment the fuse was lit igniting the Women’s Liberation Movement (1965 -1975). Interweaving unseen archival footage, personal photographs, memorabilia and lively personal accounts from feminists all around Australia,  BRAZEN HUSSIES shows us how a daring and diverse group of women joined forces to defy the status quo and demand equality. Contributing to one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century, these women sparked profound social change, at times at great personal cost.
