Ashley grew up in a world where girls are taught to be powerful. They’re told, “If you dream it, you can be it.” But, what happens when these dreamers grow up?
Now 27, Ashley knows she needs to pioneer her own path, have a strong work-ethic, and be motivated to succeed. Only a few years out of college, though, she’s beginning to feel held back and powerless.
She discovers she’s battling a bias that’s eroding her ambition and decides to grab her camera to look out at the world around her; revealing the career obstacles she and many other women still have to deal with today.
Pioneers in Skirts is a character-driven social impact documentary addressing the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams. The film is currently in post-production and will premiere in 2019!
