Dermalogica professional skin care recently partnered in a screening panel with the film ‘Suffragette’ in London. The film, set in early 20th-century Britain, depicted the growing suffragette movement galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.
Jane Wurwand, Founder and Chief Visionary of Dermalogica and FITE, participated in an exclusive screening panel where she was joined by Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst; Michelle Nicholson, founder of KeyChanges; and Suzy Greaves, editor-in-chief of Psychologies magazine, who moderated the panel.
More than 200 guests, which consisted of Dermalogica accounts, strategic brand partners, press and staff, were invited to watch the exclusive screening of the film and take part in the live discussion. During the panel discussion, the panelists spoke about women’s rights and empowerment, how far women have come and how much work there is still left to do. “We need to remember that we all stand on the shoulders of giants. This is why it’s important that we make our voices heard and we speak the truth,” Wurwand said.
