The story behind Pioneers in Skirts examines the barriers and setbacks women confront in their careers while addressing the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman or a girl, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.

A screening of Pioneers in Skirts can raise awareness for cultural biases and prejudices, empower others to know that they aren’t alone, encourage productive and meaningful discussions, and generate action.

Language: English | 60-min runtime
Closed captioning: English
Subtitles: Spanish, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, French, German, Russian, Arabic

After you watch the film and realize a possible fit for your organization to better engage with your community in conversations around gender equity, inclusion, and action — it may interest you to know that we’re offering a FREE movie screening to qualified activists all over the globe.

Called the Pioneers in Skirts Global Impact Movie Relay, this movie program is for groups who elevate women & girls, work to advance women into leadership roles, and address gender equality issues.

As part of the WD2023 conference, Pioneers in Skirts is proud to continue to serve as a formal UN Women Generation Equality Commitment Maker focused on driving policy and accountability mechanisms on behalf of women around the globe.

By making a commitment under the umbrella of Generation Equality, we have been able to amplify and expand our commitment to gender equality and be part of a major global effort to accelerate investment and progress for women and girls around the world.

Thank you, and enjoy the film!
