Versailles 1919: return of the dangerous women (film screening)
Oct 3 @ 6:00 pm – 6:45 pm

This documentary tells the story of the women who met to protest the terms of the Versailles Peace Treaty in 1919. Drawing from the international campaign to get the vote, they wanted to prevent all future wars. They became the Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom (WILPF) which is still working today.

Versailles 1919: Return of the Dangerous Women is a short documentary (20 minutes) directed by Charlotte Bill and made by Clapham Film Unit, a collective of filmmakers working with communities to tell stories not told elsewhere and funded by the European Commission. It was researched by and features volunteers from the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). The film will be introduced by the director followed by a question and answer with the director and volunteers.
