Professor Amanda Vickery's journey to uncover the story of female creativity reaches the 18th century. The focus turns to the industrial powerhouse that is Britain and the glittering French court of Marie Antoinette. Despite being regarded as second class citizens when it came to art, this was an era when ingenious women seized a galaxy of fresh opportunities to stamp their creativity on the age; from a designer who would revitalize the British silk industry to a painter who would immortalize the Ancien Régime.

This is an extraordinary documentary that feels more like travelling with a mentor-friend through the grand halls and centres of power, and through time. It belongs to girls still in school to watch as part of their learnings, as well as to mothers carving out me-time to educate themselves while also indulging in the beauty of the female spirit. I can't wait to watch Episode 1 and 3. Thank you Seattle Public Library for having these accessible!
