Women at Cambridge: Women’s struggle for education

The first of four films from the Women at Cambridge series I had the pleasure of shooting for Duckrabbit and The University Of Cambridge on Women’s struggle for education.

From the Youtube description:-

The impact of women at Cambridge is incalculable. In 1869, Girton College became the first women’s college at Cambridge, and the first in Britain, to offer residential higher education for women. But Cambridge University did not grant degrees to women until the late 1940s, the last British University to do so. In this first film of a four-film series, Dr Lucy Delap and Dr Ben Griffin, co-curators of Cambridge University Library’s The Rising Tide: Women at Cambridge exhibition, explore women’s historic struggle for equality at Cambridge in the face of mass and sometimes violent opposition.

I really enjoyed hanging out with Lucy Delap and Ben Griffin who were as knowledgable and friendly presenters for the film as you could hope to meet.
It was also a real pleasure & honor (as it always is) working with Ben from Duckrabbit, who never ceases to amaze with his kind-hearted, open professionalism.

Shot on Sony A7III with Tamron 28-75 and Sony 16-35.
Mostly on the Ziyhun Crane 2 gimbal.
