Activism

 

As a professional director in Hollywood who happens to be female, I've learned about gender disparity the hard way. My activism takes many forms:

  • I chaired the Directors Guild of America's Women's Steering Committee & produced the 2013 DGA Women Of Action Summit, the first gender-forward political action event in the guild's eighty year history.
  • I'm a frequent spokesperson on panels, in documentaries, on the radio and podcasts, and a contributor to journals, blogs, and the trades regarding women and Hollywood.
  • I hire female department heads and crew. HERE NOW's crew was 90% female.
  • I take leadership positions in organizations that promote women behind the camera.
  • I mentor many women filmmakers.
