To mark Brigit’s Day 2022, Smashing Times are delighted to host a selection of short videos celebrating powerful women from the past and present. Like Brigit, these women stood up and spoke out for the rights of others, often risking their lives in the process.

‘Tell Them Our Names’ is an imagined re-creation of moments from the lives of five powerful women during WWII. Women’s stories that have inspired the film are Marta Hillers (1911-2001) from Germany; Mary Elmes (1908-2002) from Ireland; Maria Eugenia Jasińska (1906-43) from Poland; Neus Català Pallejà (915-2) from Spain; and Dolores Ibárruri, or La Pasionaria (1895-1989), from Spain.

‘Mary Elmes’ is an interview with Mary Moynihan who speaks about the work of Mary Elmes, a Cork woman who risked her life during WWII to save hundreds of Jewish children.
‘Don’t See Any Lines’ is a song and music video by Hilary Bow, highlighting the plight of refugees and migrants.
