Protests at the Miss World contest in 1970 attracted headlines around the world. This book portrays the new and vibrant women’s liberation movement of the 70s. It tells how women protested inside and outside the Albert Hall, who they were, what took them into the women’s liberation movement, how they organised, why they were protesting and of women’s arrests and trials.

The Director, Producer and writer of the film Misbehaviour, comment on the beauty industry, then and now. Rights to that film have been sold to most European countries. (Film due out in the USA on 26th September 2020).
