Here to be Heard: the story of the Slits, directed by William E. Badgley, is a documentary about the world’s first all-girl punk band formed in 1976 London. Contemporaries of The Clash and Sex Pistols, they were the pioneering godmothers of the musical movements known as “Punky Reggae”. The film tells the story of the band and the lives of the women in it, from its’ inception to their end over 30 years later in 2010 at the death of lead vocalist Ari Up.

The documentary will be followed by a discussion on the place of women in the music industry with:

  • Anna Muchin, Writer, Composer, Performer, Music Artist Scarlett O’Hanna. Active for Engagement (

  • Camille Loiseau: Feminist journalist and researcher in gender studies. At the origin of the zine “Indie or Die” dedicated Belgian independent labels, Camille had the time to rub shoulders with a good number of artists and concert halls to ask them the following question: where are the women? It was by working in various cultural places (le Vecteur, Atelier 210) and by participating in debates (Court-Circuit, Laisse Tomber les Filles) that she began to find answers to this question.
