Sheep shearing has traditional been a male dominated industry. In the 1980’s there where over 15,000 fulltime sheep shearers in New Zealand, only 5 of those where female. She Shears follows four female shearers in the buildup to the Golden Shears, the world’s most prestigious shearing competition. Sheep shearing has traditionally been a man’s world so there’s no women’s only event but these girls won’t have it any other way. For these women, competing requires enormous tenacity and much back breaking work but driven by passion and a competitive spirit they love taking their beloved occupation to the next level.
