One Hundred Years Of The WI (1 x 60′) – Lucy Worsley tells the story of the Women’s Institute in. Rather than a cosy woman’s club full of ladies making jam and singing Jerusalem, Lucy sees the WI as one of Britain’s most important movements of modern times. Arguing that the WI is the political party we never knew we had – a powerful group run by women, for women and still thriving today with 213,000 members – in this film, Lucy demands that the WI be taken seriously and appreciated for the bold and often radical institution that it is.
