For the first time, BRAZEN HUSSIES tells the story of the bold women of the Women's Liberation Movement who re-ignited the feminist revolution in Australia. 

Bringing together unseen archival footage from the 1960s and 1970s, home movies, photographs and news media with personal in-depth interviews, the film introduces contemporary audiences to an exciting and revolutionary chapter in Australian history. BRAZEN HUSSIES pays homage to the achievements of this daring and diverse group of activists while revealing that the feminist fight - with its emphasis on inclusiveness and sexual and cultural diversity - is as relevant and urgent today as ever. Image courtesy of Anne Roberts.
