WIF Member Jen Siebel Newsom's Girls’ Club Entertainment is currently developing a documentary about women’s under-representation in entertainment and politics in the United States, and what we can do about it. In their research, they have found plenty of data to prove that there are very few women in elected office in the U.S. and that few women hold influential positions in the American media. In the face of these dramatic statistics, their central question is—why?
Jen says: We are currently in pre-production on the documentary film "Women in Power." In an effort to raise community awareness and involve our audience in the creative process, Girls' Club Entertainment has created the following interactive profile in conjunction with the International Museum of Women: Our goal is to stimulate conversation and encourage people who view this profile to add their thoughts, questions, and suggestions. We will absolutely take this feedback into account when developing interview questions and editing footage throughout post-production. Is there an issue or a theme we seem to be missing? Is there a stellar interviewee you would like to see asked a particular question? What about the story touched you most?
