Pioneers in Skirts is a multi-award-winning documentary film about the issues that affect a woman’s pioneering ambition. Real-life stories and frank commentary leave viewers seeing their role in the solution, feeling hopeful, and motivated to act.
Because we ALL must put women & girls at the heart of pandemic recovery efforts, we are offering Pioneers in Skirts to organizations who are elevating women & girls and addressing gender equality issues.
A Platform For Action
Similar to a typical international torch relay, we are traveling with the film to screen in a host of locations around the globe! In March 2021 we held the soft launch of the Pioneers in Skirts Global Impact Movie Relay during the United Nations NGO-CSW65 event — a yearly UN event exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
Today, organizations are using our relay Watch Party events to help re-ignite governments, civil society, businesses, and other stakeholders to eliminate discrimination against women & girls and achieve equality.
The movie trailer is 3-min long.
Is your organization looking for a partner in dismantling barriers and ensuring equality for people in all areas of life?
