It Should Be Women’s History All Year Long, However…..

This March, for Women’s History Month. we have so much to celebrate, but also a lot to contend with. Our economic empowerment has never been more important as it is today. The numbers of female participation behind the camera have steadily increased since we became a non-profit in 2017, but they are showing signs of retreat. The film industry has a history of making incremental change, then backsliding and we #CantGoBack. In fact, we must move forward and make further progress faster.

Progress, or Stagnation

There is no greater barometer than the lack of representation of women behind the scenes at The Oscars in 2023. Truly, the world won’t stop spinning if more than one woman is nominated for Best Cinematography. And yes, there were superior films directed by women, especially women of color.

We want to show the world the power of women as a collective in the entertainment industry. We want to show the world the power of our members and greater community (that means men!) and our mission of parity and inclusion. You can participate by spreading the word through a #CantGoBack fundraising campaign.
