They were pioneers who tried to accomplish something no one had ever done before with no path, no road map, and no rules. And, in the short term, they failed spectacularly. "Ladies" is a fictional account of the birth of The Blue Stocking Society, the world’s first major feminist movement in 1750's London, told through a modern lens. The ladies’ ambitious goals soon create scandal in London society and conflicts amongst themselves, escalating into a tangled knot of electric and jagged relationships. These women are emboldened by their righteous cause and burdened by being revolutionaries far ahead of their time. "Ladies" examines the humanity and passion of these trailblazing ladies, and inspires us to carry on the work they began.
