Sadly now more pertinent than ever, Missing Links Films' new film for UN Women UK brings forth the fears of women unable to feel safe in public places.
Grounded by the infuriating YouGov statistic that over 71% of women of all ages have reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment in public spaces, with only 3% of 18-24-year-olds not recalling experiencing sexual harassment, Safe Spaces Now instead imagines a scenario where the threat of sexual harassment and violence (i.e. men) does not exist, with the featured women telling us what they would do - in many cases activities that are so innocuous that the fear is made all the more upsetting.
With comedy director Florence Winter Hill using her lightness of touch for a serious subject matter, this timely film makes an important point eloquently and powerfully.
