A Wake-Up Call for Women Producers
By Barbara Sutton Masry
March may be Women’s History Month, but we should be working actively all year to have more women’s work on film and on stages. We cannot accept the lowly statistics without activism. It’s not that women aren’t writing enough or aren’t trying to get produced. There are a lot of closed doors. Rather than belabor why, we need to cultivate more women producers.
Let’s review what we’ve been taught as young girls that may not have been the best advice. I’m willing to use myself as a guinea pig.
NOTE: If you think it was easy finding a “women networking” pic on the interwebs, you don’t know the interwebs. Which makes Ms. Masry’s point at least as well as she does.
ANOTHER NOTE: “Network like crazy,” and “Be a mentor and a mentee” work for everyone, even – gasp – men.
