Synopsis

Pioneers in Skirts is an entertaining examination of gender parity in the workplace from the perspective of a female filmmaker who produced the film out of frustration with her own problems in the industry.

She and her crew traveled the U.S. to make this investigative documentary – weaving in relatable human stories with expert opinions. The film expands to include other industries and society in general.

What’s A Pioneer?

The definition of a Pioneer — at its core, is a woman who owns her career success; challenging the barriers she encounters along her career path.

A Pioneer is a woman who paves the way for the next generation.

A Pioneer is an employer or elected official who challenges outdated policy and law, and a person who is dedicated to being an advocate for women in the workplace.

Story background

With years of studio and independent production experience under their belts, director Ashley Maria and her female colleagues started to notice they couldn’t shake the experiences of consistently being turned down for jobs, and being looked at as being inexperienced “woman-directors.”

So, Ashley decided to do something about it. She pick up her camera to share her story; revealing the career obstacles she and many other women still have to deal with today.
