What impact do women have on the Film & Television industry here in New England
Throughout New England women are working hard to tell the stories that matter to them and their community. However, support for these women is hard to come by, or calculate. A woman who is a banker by day and a camera operator by night, will not be counted on a government survey as being a part of the storyteller circle.
Women Count, is our way to attempt to take stock of the talent we have in our area. What are the skills hiding behind day jobs? These women get lost in the shuffle! Most of us have 2nd or 3rd jobs to get by these day, but that doesn't mean we aren't valuable to the community.
So what do we do? We are looking for people who are interested in women's studies and analytics to help us do a comprehensive study on women working within media arts. Once we have this data, we can bring it to the powers that be in each state to then advocate for services for these women.
