Did I Say Hairdressing? I Meant Astrophysics
DVD1998 14 Minutes
Animated film encouraging women to take up careers in science, technology and engineering.
Another witty cartoon from Leeds Animation Workshop. Subverting themes from traditional stories, this entertaining and thought-provoking production helps to show why women are under-represented in science, engineering and technology. It illustrates the subtle and not so subtle gender type-casting which still often prevail, from babyhood right up to professional level; but by taking a positive, practical approach, it encourages women and girls to consider study and vocational training in these fields. A good discussion starter for anyone concerned with equal opportunities and related issues
DID I SAY HAIRDRESSING?… won the audience award at the 2017 London Feminist Film Festival,
