We talked about the First Take film project and the need for anonymity...
Looking at the delivery of the project, the pace was fast, women were excited to be involved, learning about film making, however, without time for reflection and self awareness, some found they had shared too much to be happy to have the film publicly screened.

Today quick sewing happened and catch ups.

Politics at 105

13.6.17

Liz, Green Grow, Awa, Bola, Lotte,

We discussed politics
with so much going on in the world right now
sharing our thoughts on what's happening and in different countries

Questions for here in Leeds
Do people here feel a pride in their lives?
Have the cuts in recent years affected how people feel about themselves and the country?
Do people here feel they have a say in their democracy?
Does having a Queen perpetuate an unequal society here?

Some of us feel things are changing
There is a movement to be more active
To speak up and to be part of the change
