In the gruelling world of competitive sheep shearing there is no women’s section.
Women and men compete together. She Shears is the story of passion, purpose and determination and five women for whom shearing is not just a job.

"While the Golden Shears comperes freestyle with verbal flair on a flying fleece or a kicky ewe, director Jack Nicol applies camera poetry to the agility, strength, skill and rhythmic grace of women wielding blades of steel."
"A stunning slice of rural life and the gutsy women who share a passion for shearing"
