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A Pioneer is an employer or elected official who challenges outdated policy and law, and a person who is dedicated to being an advocate for women in the workplace.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 looked at as inexperienced “woman-directors.”

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