The Screen Guide

It’s been said that “well-behaved women seldom make history”, but the handful of white boys who wrote our History books conveniently left out most of them out. Whoops! To rectify this situation, twenty something sisters Hannah and Eliza are setting out to revive the forgotten stories of the badass sheilas of Australian History. In each episode we focus in on one particular Sheila, transport you to the time they lived and the obstacles they faced by having inferior anatomy. We’ll show you how these ladies put their middle finger up to social norms and made their own mark on the path to equality. The series takes these women’s stories and transforms them into a modern blend of information and entertainment that inspires young people (and the young at heart) with tales of the daring, pioneering, tough-titted ladies who hiked up their petticoats and fly-kicked down the doors of opportunity for modern Australia.
