How to Watch 'Pioneers in Skirts'

Ashley Maria‘s Emmy-nominated movie Pioneers in Skirts is the director’s most personal film of her career. In an inspiring portrait of perseverance and determination, she shares her true story of starting out in her career in film; quickly feeling disheartened and frustrated with what she was experiencing. Just 2 years after starting her career, Ashley was beginning to feel burned out.

The career she had dreamed of seemed to be so far away.

Director Ashley Maria not only shares her own story, but she follows the journey of 3 ambitious teen girls on a robotics team, their fathers, as well as a young mother who is up for a promotion – all while traveling the U.S., speaking to fellow pioneering women and topic experts who have solutions to share.

By the end of her quest, Ashley finds out how we ALL can address the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, limit her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.
