In 2005, Joanna was featured in a one-hour documentary called Supersize She, which was also broadcast in the US on The Learning Channel. The show followed her training leading up to the 2004 Ms. Olympia contest. The documentary talks about her life, her parents' feelings about her decision to become a bodybuilder and nude model, her physical changes, dieting requirements, and her passion for bodybuilding as well as all the sacrifices she made to become a professional bodybuilder. The documentary was a huge success in the UK and in the US.
The first working women's circle, the "Working Women's Mutual Assistance Association", was set up in 1907. Men and women could join but the leading positions were reserved to women. The circle's internal structure was designed in such a way as to facilitate the involvement of women activists, by getting them to take part directly in specific struggles concerning women's oppression. The association's aim was to spread the ideas of socialism among the proletariat, and to attract isolated workingwomen to the trade unions and to the Social Democratic party. It did not have the ambition of becoming an autonomous political entity, separate from the traditional organisations of the workers. On the contrary, it proposed that women should join these. In this way they were opening the doors for women's participation in politics. The group did not focus its attention on issues concerning gender oppression alone, but linked these issues to the political, social and economic conditions that determined these. The aim was not to carry out a limited feminist agitation, but socialist agitation among women.
