To celebrate and mark International Women’s Day, I’ve put together a zine and it’s available now in the Etsy store. This was a collaborative project – I invited anyone who wanted to get involved to contribute their content. I ended up with material from people across the globe.
There are interviews, photography, poetry, lyrics, art and illustration, features about Riot Grrrl sessions, FemFriday, punk rock and femicide, as well as music industry advice and music recommendations.
This limited edition A5 full-colour, 24 page independent publication is £4.50 and all profits from sales of the zine are being donated to initiatives supporting women in music.

Brisbane, Eat Up for Starters, Safe Gigs for Women and Girls Rock London.

The documentary has been accepted to its first film festival! Doc’n Roll will be giving ‘So, which band is your boyfriend in?’ its London Premiere on Saturday 17 November. Following the screening I’ll also be taking part in a Q&A about the film (yep, nervous already!).

Our first screening in Portugal is happening next month! The event will be hosted by No Borders DIY Booking and is taking place on Sunday 15 July at Disgraça (Rua da Penha de França nº217A/B, 1170-183 Lisbon, Portugal). For more info, check out the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/419314138530608/
Want to see the film? Keep an eye on the website and the documentary’s social media channels for forthcoming events in your area. I’m currently talking to a few different people to set up some screenings and I’m waiting to hear back from a few different UK film festivals. If you’re interested in showing the film at an event in the UK or Europe, please get in touch!
I also have some merch available now – check out my Etsy store for badges, stickers and a limited number of zines! 🙂
Good news! If you’re coming to Manchester Punk Festival in April, you’ll be able to watch the documentary, as the UK Premiere is taking place on the Saturday of the event. Check out this interview I did with them: https://manchesterpunkfestival.co.uk/happy-international-womens-day-2018/
All pledgers have now been sent their links and/or DVDs for the documentary! I’m so pleased to have finally got the film finished and I’m really glad that people are starting to be able to actually watch it now. I’ve had several messages about screenings and unfortunately these can’t happen just yet as I’ve submitted the film to a few UK film festivals. As part of the entry criteria, some festivals prefer to screen films with premiere status, so I’m waiting to hear before I commit to any screening events in the UK. I’ll post more news about this when I can – please do email me if you are interested though, as I’m really keen to organise some screening events later in the year. While it would be awesome to have my documentary included in a festival schedule, this was never the original goal of this project, so I’ll just have to see what happens. 🙂
In other news… you’ll soon be able to buy stickers and pins – I’ll post the link up once the shop is live!
If you pledged towards the Indiegogo campaign back in 2014/2015 the VIP links to view the film have now been sent out! So if you gave £10 or more (and chose streaming or streaming/DVD perks) you will now have been sent a VIP link to access the film. I hope you enjoy it!
If you didn’t receive a link, but think you should have, please let me know (check your spam first though!).
Please note that if you pledged £5 you won’t have received the link as that perk only entitled you to have your name in the credits. I am currently talking to a few people about screenings in the new year though, so there will be other opportunities to see the film very soon. 🙂 General release date tbc.
DVDs to follow in January at some point!
