M and James Bond Ask: Are Women Equal?

More

The British organization Equals commissioned a two-minute short film for International Women's Day that features current James Bond Daniel Craig in a brief moment of drag as he is questioned by an off-camera "M," voiced by Dame Judi Dench.

The film was directed "Nowhere Boy" director/conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood and "is the first film featuring Bond to be directed by a woman," Equals noted in releasing it on YouTube.

Tomorrow, March 8, is International Women's Day -- an occasion perhaps more noted around the world than here in the U.S. Equals is a group started by singer Annie Lennox to bring together charities and celebrities to mark the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day, first celebrated during the suffrage era in 1911.
