About Young Women and The Sea
The film is based on a book by the same name by Glen Stout. The book tells the story of the first woman, Gertrude Ederle (Trudy), who swam across the English Channel back in 1926. She was a competitive swimmer who won gold in the Olympics in 1924.
Daughter of a German butcher, Trudy decided to attempt swimming across the English Channel after she successfully swam over 22 miles from Battery Park in New York to Sandy Hook, New Jersey. That swam set a record for her that stood undefeated for 81 years. She was also often called ‘Queen of the waves.’
The movie refers to ‘women’ as there was a race between women to see who could swim across the English Channel first, a feat only five men had been able to complete before that.
