Breaking Ground captures the evolution of the London Irish Women’s Centre's dual role as a place for practical support and as a hub for political activism. Made entirely by women, Breaking Ground combines unique archive material from London in the 80's and 90's with a broad range of interviews with women involved in the organisation over its 29 year history.
'Breaking Ground: the story of the London Irish Women’s Centre' does more than just recount the story of the Irish Women’s Centre in London from its origins in the 1980s to its closure in 2012. It also contributes to our understanding of radical feminism, national identity and sexual politics during this period.' Maria-Jose de Esteban, Information Specialist at the British Film Institute, 2013.
