Some Women Other Women and all the Bittermen combines ‘Bittermen’, a six-part fictional soap opera on the takeover of Tetley’s Brewery during the early 1990s, with footage documenting the meetings of Justice for Domestic Workers Leeds over the course of 2014 as they began to organise around restrictions to their employment rights within UK immigration laws. The film developed over a two-year period involving research interviews with ex Tetley’s Brewery workers and a tentative collaboration with migrant women workers from J4DW. Although at a temporal, political, and cultural remove from one another the stories of these two groups are framed by common concerns relating to sites of labour and working class identity as framed through gender and race.
