MA Thesis Film Available Online

M, who volunteers at a charity shop in a town outside Manchester

I completed my MA Visual Anthropology documentary in late 2009, but didn’t make it widely available, at the request of the primary research participants. Now, five years later, the protagonists have all moved on with their lives to a place at which they feel able to share this film. We hope that you find it insightful, and informative. Thanks to the women of WAST for their support. (Click below to watch)
