 **************************

 

Women In Film encourages women to continue speaking up about sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination.   Speaking together we can make the changes that are desperately needed in all work places – not just in the film industry.  As a member of Women In Film and Television International, the umbrella organization of over 45 chapters around the world, we stand together to promote change.

This is an excerpt of a press release made by one of our chapters in order to promote change:

In order to do something to end sexual harassment, we must require Industry leaders to:
(1) mandate gender inclusive boards and decision making groups
(2) mandate inclusive hiring practices from the top down, from executives to support staff. Ensuring that there are more women in positions of power will change the culture and result in decreased sexual harassment and discrimination overall
(3) mandate that lasting legal penalties be applied without compromise, bias or settlement, and these penalties be enforced for those found guilty and complicit in these crimes of discrimination. The bottom line is that no one should be held to different standards; regardless of their power, money or fame.
Women need allies. We need our male colleagues – who have mothers, sisters, daughters and friends – to step up and speak out now and whenever they are witness to discrimination of any kind.

Our Activities

We serve our community by facilitating their access to opportunities in industry. In addition, we lend our services to non-profit organizations helping women and children. Our programs and events include workforce skills development through mentoring and training workshops; production of public service announcements for non-profits dedicated to women and children; and industry partnerships that further our mission. WIFM is a chapter of Women In Film & Television International (WIFTI), a global network comprising over 40 chapters worldwide with more than 10,000 members, dedicated to advancing professional development and achievement for women in industry.
