Crossroads Women’s Centre present
All Work and No Pay &
Women of the Rhondda
Sat 19 Oct 2019 / 2-4pm
As part of our current exhibition All You Need’s An Excuse, please join us for a special screening of a recent acquisition by the London Community Video Archive (LCVA), All Work and No Pay, made in 1975 by the Power of Women Collective and Wages for Housework Campaign, and broadcast in 1976 by the community access unit for the BBC, Open Door. The programme provided much-needed airtime where the demand for wages for housework could be put forward. The video shows meetings and interviews with groups in different countries developing campaign strategies and women of different races and nationalities sharing their experiences.
The screening will be introduced by women from the Global Women’s Strike, based at the Crossroads Women’s Centre in Kentish Town. GWS have also chosen to screen Women of the Rhondda (1973) made collectively by Esther Ronay, Mary Kelly, Mary Capps, Humphrey Trevelyan, Margaret Dickinson, Brigid Seagrave and Susan Shapiro. Distributed by Cinenova.
The event is free and all are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
This project is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Shifting Ground.
Crossroads Women's Centre
Based in Kentish Town, the Crossroads Women’s Centre brings together women from different ages, backgrounds and communities to share experiences, and learn from and support each other. The Centre is run by Crossroads Women as a disability-accessible, multi-racial, community resource. It is a place of safety for vulnerable and low-income women. Men ready to work, with women, in a mutually supportive way are also welcome.
