Feminist Fightback Filmclub presents: Misbehaviour (2020)

On the lead up to Christmas we will be showing a feel good comedy based on the true story of feminist protests against the 1970 Miss World competition's London final.  

The 1970 Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by the American comedian Bob Hope. At that time Miss World was the most-watched TV show in the world with over 100 million viewers. Arguing that beauty competitions objectify women, the newly formed women's liberation movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. When the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the second (after Carole Crawford of Jamaica) black woman to be crowned Miss World.

Join us for some lighthearted viewing during the darkest time of the year. As usual we will have a discussion after the film, and drinks and snacks will be available.

Suggested donations on the door £2/5/10 unwaged/waged/solidarity.

All genders welcome.
