In Our Own Time (1981), with response from Sue Peggs

This short film was made by the Bristol-based film collective Women in Moving Pictures (W.I.M.P.S) in 1980-1981. It explores the lives of the Bristol Women’s Music Collective in order to examine how women’s liberation activists used music as a means of empowerment in order to find a voice that was personal, collective and political.
