Women and Girls Star in the SheDocs Online Film Festival

Posted on March 7, 2013

If the Oscars were any indication, we know Hollywood is lagging behind on representing women and girls in all their diversity on the big screen. In fact only 11 percent of protagonists in Hollywood films are female, according to a 2011 report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film. Women and Girls Lead has turned to the little screen to offer a refreshing selection of films starring women and girls as leaders in their own lives. The #SheDocs Online Film Festival will run from March 1-31 and feature 10 documentary films to watch online all month long in celebration of Women's History Month. We promise you'll be inspired by these protagonists! Start watching at today!
