Publicly visible additional information: Women's video making, conceived as a set of interrupting practices, challenges the mainstream metanarrative concerning the lack of women's filmmaking generally. This thesis recontextualises the history of women's independent moving image making, recognising video as a primary tool women have used to challenge both their representation in, and their exclusion from the mainstream film industry.
Keywords: Women's video, women filmmaker, women's amateur practice, Judith Goddard, Catherine Elwes, Pipilotti Rist, Margaret Tait, VHS video, women's early video production, feminism and video, reclaiming women's art history
