Her Century: Scottish Women on Film

A glimpse into the work, home life and leisure of Scottish women during the twentieth century.
Scotland's women lived through major social change in the twentieth century, challenging their roles in society and fighting for equality: at work and at home, classroom to croft, girlhood to motherhood. Discover their stories and hear their voices in Her Century, a timely collection of archive film curated by Scotland's Moving Image Archive and guaranteed to spark debate. These films are screened together for the first time in a touring programme full of contemporary relevance.
Featuring work from Scottish female filmmakers including Sarah Erulkar, Brigid "Budge" Cooper and Jenny Gilbertson, these rarely-seen films follow women's histories through 100 years of filmmaking in Scotland.
Her Century is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI's Film Audience Network and funded by BFI and Screen Scotland. In partnership with the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.

Our screening will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A - Chaired by award winning journalist, commentator and broadcaster, Lesley Riddoch.  The panel will comprise: Dr Lesley Orr (feminist historian, writer and activist, currently based at the University of Edinburgh Centre for Theology and Public Issues), Lorna Bennet (Women’s Engineering Society, Scotland Cluster Coordinator) and Dr Emily Munro (National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, Learning Officer and Curator of the Her Century programme).
