Oh (wo)man, it’s been a week, hasn’t it? Is this the beginning of the great icy wall of sexism coming down? I sure hope so, but I’ve seen “the end” in my sights before, so I’m not celebrating just yet. Well, little celebrations, sure.
If you’re participating in #WomenBoycottTwitter today, I encourage you to take any extra time that gives you to recharge your mental and physical resources and catch your breath. This is not an outrage competition, this is real change we’re trying to create and it takes time. We still have much more work ahead and we need you to be healthy, so no guilt if you need to take a break.
And, of course, since you have a little free time…Don’t forget to support your filmmaking sisters below. A few are in their last hours of Seed & Spark’s Hometown Heroes competition, so they could use a follow to help them qualify. And if you have a few bucks to spare, all the better!
Thanks for stopping by!
Reminder: All of the projects listed below have female directors at the helm OR they are projects that benefit women directors (e.g., film festivals, funds, etc). The campaigns at the top of the list are the ones ending soonest, so get in there and support ASAP (with $$ or an RT on Twitter). Click the titles to go directly to each project’s crowdfunding page, those in italics are new additions this week.
Thanks for visiting and thank you very much for helping us support and raise awareness about WOMEN DIRECTORS AT WORK!
