Wild Women focuses on a community of intrepid women who brave the winter waters of England’s rivers and lakes. Wild Swimming has been part of our cultural history since the middle ages, when it was believed to have had healing powers and figured in early medical and scientific research. Today, wild swimming attracts a diverse range of participants, with women being central to this community. Feelings of vulnerability during these swims are surpassed by the shared joy and exhilaration experienced while swimming in these groups. Women offer support, laughter and empowerment, showing strength and beauty in the cold months of Winter.
