Vote 100: Born a Rebel

The film, made up of footage from the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives, was made in response to the lack of women’s voices in the archives. Stories of rebellion. Stories of bravery. Stories of women who aren’t waiting for permission to take what they want.

The title was inspired by the words of the first person to appear in the film, Mrs Elizabeth Dean.  Still a proud suffragette at 100 years old, she told the camera, “Between you and I, I think I must have been born a rebel!”

The film was commissioned by Cinema for All as part of Vote 100, which marked a century of women's suffrage.  It was screened at events in 2018.
