Vote 100: Born a Rebel
Showing women’s lives from the suffragettes to the miner’s strikes, and much more, Born a Rebel is celebration of women in protest across the North of England since the start of women’s suffrage 100 years ago.
The film’s title is inspired by the first person we encounter in the film – suffragette Elizabeth Dean who, celebrating her 100th birthday, defiantly tells the camera:
‘Between you and I, I must have been born a rebel!’
The film was commissioned by Cinema For All and made in partnership with the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives. The film is supported by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme.
