International Women’s Day

It’s International Women’s Day 2013! If you’re not familiar with it, do take a look at the official website for the occasion.

Given the nature of the day, you might be interested in our classic doc, “Emancipation of Women“, covering changes in women’s lives and status between 1890 and 1930. The film was put together when the Archive was under EMI ownership (from 1969 until 1986 – see our history of British Pathé page). The entire production can be viewed online for free here.
