Daniel Craig And Judi Dench: Are We Equals?
March is Women’s History Month and tomorrow is the centenary of International Women’s Day. EQUALS, a partnership of leading charities brought together by Annie Lennox to celebrate the centenary, had filmmaker Sam Taylor Wood produce the sobering video above. Daniel Craig, AKA James Bond, appears in drag while Judi Dench does a voice over highlighting the many inequities faced by women. “We’re equals, aren’t we, double 0 seven?” she asks. “Yet it is 2011 and a man is still likely to earn more money than a women, even for the same job.” But, she continued, “It’s not just about money and power. …one in four are victims of domestic violence.” Midway through the video, Dench inquires pointedly: “For someone with such a fondness for women, I wonder if you’ve ever considered what it might be like to be one?”
