Description

Watch a gripping documentary that explores the stories of courageous young Australian women whose activist projects are characterised by those in authority as "flaky, hippy, greenie efforts". Projects that do good, but at a cost that the economy cannot possibly bear given the pressure on business to pass such costs onto consumers.  So imagine how liberating yet scary it was for these women, some already exhibiting PTSD and anxiety mindsets as they fought on the frontlines of activism, to then work alongside a well-respected female venture capitalist who works with projects doing good for the planet and society and community in general.  The joy in the room was palpable when she unveiled to each woman in turn the remarkable return on investment their work could actually achieve. A good space for in-depth discussion will follow facilitated by Margaret.
