Pioneers in Skirts impact fund

Pioneers in Skirts is a multi-award-winning documentary film about the obstacles that get in the way of pioneering ambition. The film addresses the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.

We recently launched the film and are now in the trenches of movie impact efforts! Will you please join us?

We need your support to help fund the impact we're making with the film. Right now we are trying to --

1. screen the movie as part of our Global Impact Movie Relay campaign . With an aim to help put women & girls at the heart of pandemic recovery efforts, the program allows for the film to screen (for FREE) in front of groups who elevate women & girls, work to advance women into leadership roles, and address gender equality issues.

We LIVE-screen the film over zoom to people all over the world, we edit the post-screening convo for the co-host to use it in their impact campaigns, and we edit a short teaser to help them promote it.

2. create multi-language screening kits and educational programs.

3. translate the film into even more languages (subtitles). This is important for screening hosts, but will also allow us to extend our reach with relay efforts! Imagine watching the film LIVE on Zoom with subtitles in your native language! (Zoom auto translate shows up after the words are said...too late for watching a film)

4. enhance audience engagement with technology tools and giveaways (that we currently cannot afford)!

We sincerely appreciate your help,

Ashley Maria - Director, Writer, Producer & Lea-Ann W. Berst - Producer, Writer, Activation
