DescriptionUsing a combination of live action and animation this fast-moving, witty film charts the constant harassment which women face every day, and clearly depicts the continuum, which ranges from street humour to stereotyped media images to actual physical violence. The film is not only a sorry tale of what women have to face in a sexist society, but it also offers ways in which women have and could fight back against the constantly shifting but never changing attitudes to women in our society.
