In a world where girls are told, “if you dream it, you can be it,” Ashley felt held back – her dreams slipping away.

Determined to find a fix, she uncovers an empowering fact: she isn’t broken, and never was, and continues her nationwide journey to reveal why this is increasingly happening to many up-and-coming professional women in America.

Pioneers in Skirts is a documentary about how young women can pioneer their careers and overcome the obstacles in their way. By @AshleyMaria and @MarketSleddogg. Premiering in 2017!
