A CATALYST FOR CONVERSATION

impact film

Pioneers in Skirts is a feature length documentary discussing the gender bias and sexism women confront in their careers and, in relatable story telling, offers strategies for what we all can do right now to move the culture past it — at work, in our society, and at home.

It’s about the core responsibility we ALL must have to catch our biases and prejudices.

The film can be screened virtually right now — which we have found is an option that really helps to provide an avenue for families to have conversations about complex topics with their children. Pioneers in Skirts can also screen in-person when we are all ready to be together again!

There are many options available for screening the movie. The first step is to fill out this form online: Host A Screening Form.

it’s a feel-good film

This movie is so hopeful! As a woman, I have experienced and seen first-hand the devastating impact bias and sexism can have on a career. So, to watch a story and witness other women’s journeys in a way that is truthful and down to earth left me feeling inspired. I wasn’t expecting it, but Pioneers in Skirts is really a feel-good film.

Stephanie Woodward, Audience Member

What I love about this film is the fact that it takes a topic that is seemingly provocative and typically off limits for discussion and completely makes it safe to talk about.

Reaching across aisles and instigating conversation, this film is a truly enjoyable documentary that, in my opinion, will change minds and move hearts.

It’s such an important film, especially today. Everybody can see their role in the problem.

Jake Yara, Audience Member

The film and the story that it tells established a safe platform for us moms to share our own career experiences and in turn, for our daughters to speak about their own ambition and the lens through which they see their futures.

Eva Martinez, VP, Women in Aerospace Canada

Stories like Pioneers in Skirts are what will build the genuine and compassionate leaders we need in the world of tomorrow.

Len Shneyder, Audience Member

Feedback from members was amazing. Change starts with creating empathy for what others are experiencing and the movie has a story that does just that.

Janet Jones, Board of Directors Vice Chair, M3AAWG

We watched your wonderful movie last night. First, let me say that my 16 year old autistic son was the most interested and I was incredibly proud of him. This documentary did exactly what I believe it was designed to do, create an opportunity to address how people are treated in this world.
