SYNOPSIS

A firebrand documentary, Brazen Hussies reveals the rousing stories of the women who changed Australia fighting for liberation and equality.

The documentary opens with a pivotal moment in the fight for women’s rights — two women chaining themselves to the bar at Brisbane’s Regatta Hotel to protest the prohibition of women in pubs. Interweaving freshly uncovered archival footage with passionate personal accounts from women on the front line, director Catherine Dwyer crafts a timely reminder that what might seem impossible to change in society can be altered from the grassroots onwards.
