A film about the shape and sound of sexism in Australian politics.

In honor of International Women’s Day, join us at Dendy Cinemas on Wednesday, March 8 at 7:00pm for a one-off screening of the powerful Australian documentary STRONG FEMALE LEAD. Exploring the themes of sexism, power and misogyny, STRONG FEMALE LEAD examines the issue of prejudice against women in leadership and its ongoing impact on female participation in parliament and society more broadly.

One in three Australian women experience discrimination or harassment in the workplace. Australia’s first and only female prime minister, Julia Gillard, was one of them. Strong Female Lead is a film about Australia’s struggle with the notion of women in power. Using only archival footage from Julia Gillard’s three-year term in office, this film is an honest portrait of the nation’s response to its first and only female prime minister.
