View the first 15 minutes of Pioneers in Skirts

Pioneers in Skirts delivers a story that opens the door for productive conversations about topics of stereotyping, sexism, and the realities of others. The film is ideal for families who are raising children to think critically and speak up against sexism and gender inequalities, companies who are building their culture of solidarity and support, and communities who are providing ways for people to work together for the common good.

Our movie-end theme song, Freeway, was written by teen Mia Yara and performed by teen band The Controll Freex.
