Two years ago screenwriter, novelist and Environmental activist, Rebecca Frayn released Misbehaviour, a revolutionary feminist feature film on the 1970 Miss World protests by the Women’s Liberation movement.
The furore interrupted a live TV broadcast and in turn sparked so many conversations that put Women’s lib on the map at a time when so many of those issues we are dealing with today were mostly unheard, like the #METOO movement. Keira Knightley & Gugu Mbatha-Raw both star in the film – which was nominated last year for Best British Film. It is a story told about women by women, like all of Rebecca’s work and one which took ten years of investigative digging to uncover. We also hear about her new novel, Heatwave, which is set in Ibiza and shines a light on the ecological challenges the island is facing through the perspectives of four characters.
