Feminism: A Fashion Story (2017)

A short documentary made from the SWFTA archives, highlighting the importance of feminism, and its link to fashion.
Sometimes a number is equal in quantity, but different in value. The example used during the mathematical workshop above illustrates the binary mentality that sometimes is applied to gender-related issues in society. To begin with, the numbers show equivalence; however, once the teacher turns the card around, it reveals that even though the quantity is the same, the variables are different. This is a good analogy for the constant comparison between groups and individuals, where different values exist and therefore, different needs arise.

I found a jewel from the Westward Diaries, a programme transmitted in 1966 titled: "The Importance of #Feminism". According to Wikipedia, the Westward Television was "the first #ITV franchise holder for the South West of England. It held the franchise from 29 April 1961 until 31 December 1981". I believe the narrative of the programme I have chosen is valuable for its fashion, topic, and controversy of opinions; among which a female states that she prefers male leadership. I found this video to be extremely relevant for my theme because it begins by exploring how the fashion of pipes is often attributed to males. Furthermore, I found it particularly interesting to hear a man confess that he would not like to see a #woman prime minister, as our current society in the United Kingdom has a female prime minister, Theresa May.
