I believe the BVE production show should allow mothers with babies under 1 year old to attend.
Let's face it, it's not like we are going to swamp the show with babies. There's a very small proportion of women working in the technical fields of film and this could be partly because of these kind of exclusions. We need to address this imbalance.

LauraGiles - Interesting thought. Did you have a particular issue there? Please do email us on email@example.com if you have a specific story to share.
amym - They do even older children for free - just email the help desk/info link after you sign up. I asked them this year and they were super approachable and keen that this happen :)
LauraGiles - Thanks, Amy, useful info. Would still be helpful to have a creche for smaller kids so we will add that to our list of things to follow up on.
JessicaLevick - Do they actively exclude them?? How mad! Perhaps you could do a poll to see if anyone on here knows the people who organise it?
