« Interview with Ruth Lovell, Waltham Forest YFC | Main | December update »

I have seen now how very important these films are to me as a woman. I hope others will too, and utilize them in the class rooms.

Thanks Rebekah. The list looks a bit dated now as it was written two and a half years ago. Has anyone got any more recent suggestions to add? There seem to be plenty of films that focus on relationships and marriage like Bride Wars. Any that would encourage girls to broaden their horizons and widen their expectations?


Princess Ka'iulani is another one that could be added to the list. It's based on a true story from the later 1800's about a Hawaiian princess who is sent to England for education, where she meets and falls in love with an Englishman. Later on, however, when Hawaii faces annexation by the US, she returns to fight for her country's independence and the people's right to vote. Here's the link to the summary at the IMDB - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1185344/


Thanks Tami - that looks really interesting. I think this list could do with a good update actually!
