Four down-to-earth documentaries about women in Britain today - 20 years after the liberation movement promised a revolution in their lives.
With a blend of insight and humour, Sisters Under the Skin explores the reality of feminism in the 80s.
A group of can-can girls from Suffolk challenge the view that flaunting their knickers and suspenders is degrading to women. 'As a feminist myself,' says Francesca, 'I think all feminists should do this dance.'
Adds Clare, a single mother of three, 'It gives me the chance to get away from mundane things and become utterly gorgeous.'
