Stand with us

Thank you for supporting women in film, and empowering us to continue to fight for the future of women & girls who dream big.

Pioneers in Skirts is an inspiring film about the obstacles that can limit a woman’s pioneering ambition, and what we ALL can do about it. The film is a 60-min multi-award-winning impact documentary made to encourage a healthy dialogue about the gender bias women confront in their careers, and what we ALL must do — both women & men — right now to change this.

Through characters and stories, and underlining their experiences with statistics and expert interviews, the film addresses what it is that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.

Currently broadcasting in the U.S. on PBS & public television, and screening around the world,  Pioneers in Skirts has successfully been a catalyst for meaningful conversations about taking action against cultural bias, sexism, and unfair stereotypes.

We’ve seen audiences connecting with the problem individually, experiencing a broadened perspective of what’s really happening around them, and awakening with a sense of responsibility and empathy that empowers them to make a difference.

HELP US MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN

We released the film during the pandemic, and now that we can start to return to in-person events, we are in the trenches of boosting our movie impact efforts!

Please contribute to the Pioneers in Skirts impact funding to develop micro-learning videos, fund the Pioneers in Skirts Global Movie Impact Relay, create multi-language screening kits, translate the film into even more languages (subtitles), build audience engagement, and more.
