Anthems: International Women's Month Trailer

Introducing “Anthems”, a collection of 31 original manifestos, speeches, stories, poems and rallying cries written and voiced by exceptional women, that celebrate and contemplate what it means to be a woman. Our beauty, our failures, our rich heritage, our rage and our power. The series brings together women from all works and walks of life from Booker Prize winner Bernadine Everisto to Vice Editor Zing Tseng, Syrian Poet and Activist Lisa Luxx to Chef Ruby Tandoh, the Women of The Receipts Podcast plus 24 more powerful voices. Proving that there is more that binds us together than sets us apart. These Are Our Anthems.
