Catherine Dwyer is the Writer and Director of the critically acclaimed documentary, BRAZEN HUSSIES - a deep dive into the history of the Aussie Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1970s. She was inspired to make the film during her time as an Associate Producer on Mary Dore’s SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY (2014) – about the Women’s Movement in the United States. It was during this experience that she realized how little she knew of her own country’s feminist history and how easily it was being forgotten. BRAZEN HUSSIES was nominated for the 2020 AACTA Award for “Best Feature Documentary” and is listed as one of The Guardian’s top 10 Australian films of 2020.
