Synopsis:

Brazen Hussies introduces contemporary audiences to the Australian second-wave feminists, who declared war on 'male chauvinism' and traditional sex roles, demanding that women be set free from the 'chains of femininity'. This feature-length documentary (also available in a 58-minute version) traces how the Australian Women's Liberation Movement was born amidst the tumultuous politics of the 1960s, influenced by the anti-war, anti-imperialist, and civil rights movements worldwide.

By going back in time, Brazen Hussies reveals how the changes demanded by these women fifty years ago have paved the way for where feminism finds itself today. Recording and celebrating this important history offers a valuable opportunity to reassess and discuss where we are at as a society, what gains have been made, what is at risk and where we are headed. While the struggle is far from over, women and girls today will be inspired by the pioneering efforts of those who came before them and changed the world forever.

The film interweaves freshly uncovered archival footage, personal photographs, memorabilia and lively accounts from the bold women who reignited the feminist movement in Australia, at times at great personal cost.
