This film presents the lives of a number of noteworthy women from London’s recent history. The first woman, Octavia Hill, was a pioneer of social housing and founded the “open spaces” movement, the forerunner to environmentalism. The next, Amy Ashwood Garvey, was a pan-Africanist who started the United Negro Improvement Association with her then husband, Marcus Garvey.

The third story is that of Claudia Jones, the Trinidadian activist and “mother” of the Notting Hill Carnival. Jayaben Desai, the final woman profiled, is a factory worker who campaigned for the rights of Black and Asian workers. Featuring interviews with a number of famous Londoners, Hidden Herstories is a revealing tribute to four remarkable women, each with a dream to change the world they lived in.

Trinidad & Tobago premiere.
