James Bond supports International Women's Day

Sam Taylor-Wood, director of the piece, said: “Bond is challenged by ‘M’ to think about gender inequality, and I hope that the film encourages viewers to do the same. Despite great advances in women’s rights, statistics show that when it comes to the balance of power between the sexes, equality is far from being a global reality. As ‘M’ reminds Bond, facing up to gender issues and the sometimes covert nature of sexism in the 21st century is something that we all have to recognise, confront and challenge.”

"It's not just about money and power," 'M' tells Bond, as she explains that access to education and freedom from violence are more telling metrics for gauging women's equality.

"So, are we equals?" 'M' asks. "Until the answer is 'Yes' we must never stop asking."
