Summary

Help us equip more women change makers! We are expanding our Reel Women Real Change programming so that even more women and girls can use storytelling to advocate for the causes that matter most to them and their communities. If you care about equity, if you appreciate the fact that stories power change and stories change power, and if you want to support those who seek to bridge current divides, join us in creating a world in which important stories promote positive change.

Challenge

In much of the world, women's voices are not being heard - and even well-intentioned public policy fails because of it. Women often know, see, and experience challenges in our communities in different ways than men. Women and girls have valuable stories to tell from a unique perspective that, if accounted for, would further equity worldwide. Change makers need skills and support to take important stories to people in power and inform smart policy.

Solution

Recognizing that stories power change and stories change power, our programming connects potential advocates with the tools they need to bridge divides and create change. Our Reel Women Real Change workshops are designed specifically for women who want to utilize storytelling as a platform to advocate for social change. Our holistic approach, including international mentorship, ensures smart storytelling strategy from beginning to end. In 2023, we are moving from volunteer-based to full-time.

Long-Term Impact

While policy can change in the stroke of a pen, the process of winning political support can take decades. While video can be shot and uploaded in minutes, creating effective film and a strategy to influence social change can take years. Our curriculum and mentorship programming support our participants over the long term, both personally and professionally. We are amplifying more women and girl's voices to, in turn, amplify community stories and inform policy around the world.
