About the film

Official London pre-premiere of Why Women Need to Climb Mountains - a journey through the life and vision of Dr Gerda Lerner

Grassroots activist, social reformer, writer, and pioneering feminist historian Gerda Lerner can be called one of the most inspiring women of the 20th century. This documentary shows in detail the courageous life and work of Gerda and asks the question: How does knowing our history affect our potential to shape the future? 

The exploration of the film reaches back into the revolutionary awakening of women in the 20th century, and stretches into the 21st century with the question: what is next? 

The film premiered May 29 in Berlin and was received very well. It has circulated various film festivals in the USA and Europe and there will be more premieres in Austria, Switzerland, South America and the States.

The Skip Garden shall be premiering Dr Gerda Lerner's documentary
