As Team Engender sat down to plan ways to mark our 25th
Anniversary at the beginning of the year, we happened upon this very timely
list of 25 feminist films due out in 2018.* With this list in mind, we issued a
call-out to our members for reviews, reactions and thoughts on how women are
represented in film this year.
Our first review is from Kay, a linguistics graduate of the University of Aberdeen and who is currently working as an English teacher in Tokyo. This review contains spoilers, so continue with caution if you haven't seen the film yet.
*OK, it’s 26 films. We won’t tell if you don’t.

Last year we asked women in Scotland to share their days with us as part of our Making Work Visible project on International Women's Day. This year, our Making Work Visible project is back and even bigger than before.
This year, Engender are running a photography project to show all of the different things women in Scotland do. We are looking for people to take part in this photography project to tell us about women’s lives across Scotland.

Engender is working with the University of Stirling to host a student placement who will be exploring Engender's archives as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary.
Karen Watson worked for a large financial organisation for almost 20 years before
deciding to return to University to follow her dream of getting involved in feminism and gender equality studies. She lives with her son, two cats and a dog and hopes to go on to PhD study in the Autumn.
Here's her first blog for Engender, charting the early discussions about purpose, vision, and the challenge of definition.
