TO celebrate International Women's Day, Live Borders is screening specially selected archive films exploring the work, leisure, and home life of Scottish women in the 20th century.

Her Century is a collection of rare film footage shown together for the first time thanks to Film Hub Scotland and the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.

Featuring work from Scottish female filmmakers, Sarah Erulkar, Brigid ‘Budge’ Cooper, and Jenny Gilbertson, these rarely-seen films follow women’s histories through 100 years of filmmaking in Scotland.

Scotland’s women lived through major social change in the 20th century, challenging their roles in society and fighting for equality: at work and at home, classroom to croft, girlhood to motherhood.

Her Century brings to the big screen both the dominant norms of how a woman was ‘meant’ to be as well as the strong resistance to them, featuring the faces and voices of pioneers, schoolgirls and housewives from the Edwardian era to the Thatcher years.

Highlights of the film programme include:

Male and Female (1980) – A public health film directed by prolific but undiscovered documentary maker Sarah Erulkar, featuring teenagers discussing their views on gender roles in the 1980s.

Herring Harvest at Yarmouth (1910c) – An early film showing the ‘Scotch lassies’ hard at work gutting and packing fish in Yarmouth, some 600 miles from home.

A Day in the Home (1951) – An educational film for domestic science pupils about the ‘proper’ role of the housewife and mother in post-war Scotland.

More films directed by female documentary pioneers Jenny Gilbertson and Brigid ‘Budge’ Cooper, capturing women’s histories through 100 years of filmmaking in Scotland.

Her Century will be screened at the Heart of Hawick on Sunday, March 8.

Sophy Delavigne, Heart of Hawick operations manager said: "We’re thrilled to be able to show Her Century at Heart of Hawick’ on International Women’s Day and we hope to see a lot of women from around the Borders come and enjoy the film.”

The curtain goes up for Her Century at noon.

Tickets are on sale at the Box Office, priced at £7 (standard) and £6.50 (concession).
