WWF representatives working on Arctic and northern issues are aware of the contextual complexities that the IENGO legacy in the Arctic and North

Legacies 7 Summarising the legacy of what he called Jennings’ ‘precious handful of films’, Lindsay Anderson wrote in 1981 that while the films ‘may not seem directly dedicated to our dilemmas … they can still stir and inspire us with their imaginative and moral impulse’.1 More appropriately, to rephrase Anderson’s observation, Jennings’ films continue to ‘stir and inspire’ precisely because they continue in various ways to raise issues relevant to the present: among them, forms of representation capable of effectively expressing everyday experience and national

190 6 Legacy It has been assumed that the passing of the Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Act in 1928 marked the end of the campaigning of suffrage societies; however, the AFL, along with many other organisations, stayed active and continued to provide a means by which actresses could unite, collaborate, campaign and network in a politically active, professional organisation.
