Palace Nova East End, Adelaide
To celebrate the end of 2020, Spence Club decided that a private screening of the brand new, women's empowerment independent film, Brazen Hussies was just what the membership needed moving into a new year.
The movie itself tells the story of 'how a daring and diverse group of women joined forces to defy the status quo, demand equityand create profound social change'. This documentary aptly follows the Women's Liberation Movement in Australia from 1965-1975, with incredible interviews,archival footage and photos, this
documentary is like looking back in time. Whilst opening the eyes of Spence Club members to the struggles and incredible
determination of women in that period to improve Australia for women today. The cinema filled with applause at the conclusion ofthe film with the members feeling not only grateful for the sacrifice of those that have come before us, but also motivation and determination to ensure thattheir hard work was not in vain and is only improved as the world continues to evolve.
We were also joined by the wonderful Katrine Hildyard, who introduced the film and shared her personal insight into the workof the women during this time and how she hopes to see further progress in the future.
We would like to extend a warm thank you to Penfolds winery for the lovely speaker gift as well as the door prizes for members.
