What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Maiden is a documentary about the the first-ever all-female crew to enter an around-the-world yacht race. In 1989, after being told that no crew would hire a woman, 24-year-old Tracy Edwards decided to put together her own group to compete in the Whitbread Round the World Race. The male-dominated world of yacht racing was unwelcoming, even going as far to say that Edwards and her crew wouldn't survive the race. But they defied the odds and proved just how successful female sailors could be. This looks like an inspiring true story for tweens and up, but expect some swearing, smoking, and perilous situations.
