Commissioned by Womenlink (a feminisit activist organisation founded in 1987), feminist film collective _Bariteo_’s first film candidly addresses the daily struggles of female office workers. Comprising two sections, the first episode represents the neverending tasks facing a working mother and how the situation is exacerbated by her oblivious husband. The second portrays single female workers who form a labour union to counter misogynist office culture. A ‘workshop’ film developed by the collective in order to help them process urgent feminist issues together, Even Little Grass Has Its Own Name strikingly captures everyday verbal violence and structrural discrimination with playfulness and a sharp sense of humour.
