Filming was done by: Mae Yip, Pheobe Antiri, Vivien DaSilva, Flynn Roddam, Sam Hornsby.
"It was truly empowering to be a part of 'The Voice of a Woman' as a young female and it was an incredible opportunity to collaborate with other like-minded girls.It was inspiring to hear Naomie Harris tell her story and the obstacles she overcame. Listening to her talk about there being no liberation in being shy made me re-evaluate the importance of my own 'voice' and think about other young women who are struggling to overcome personal fears. I appreciated her honesty that to be successful is not just a reflection of hard work, but above all a belief in ones self.
As an aspiring filmmaker, it was enriching to be able to see the level of work that was put in to production and the experience allowed me to train and practice using the equipment. Being in a production environment and engaging with an extraordinary actress was really encouraging. I believe VOW will inspire others and help young women to find their own 'voice' and way through personal challenges." - Vivien da Silva, aged 19.
