I believe… women can change the world, one word at a time.
WOMEN’S STORIES MATTER,
Of the 100 top-grossing films in America in 2018, only 11 featured a woman aged 45+ in a leading (or co-leading) role. Side note: only 40 of those 100 films featured a female of any age in a leading or co-leading role.
Female writers are less likely than male writers to get publishing deals
On average books by female authors are priced 45% lower than those by males
In the UK 65% of theatre-goers are female, yet only 28% of playwrights are women
WHY AM I SHARING THESE STATISTICS?
(*statistics from https://www.fawcettsociety.org.uk/sex-power-2018 , https://womenandhollywood.com/resources/statistics/2018-statistics/ , https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/may/01/books-by-women-priced-45-lower-study-finds)
Because I believe…
that when women see, read or hear stories by other women they can be both inspired and empowered.
I believe that women’s voices and stories matter, especially those over 40 who are so often left out of our cultural story. The only way for those statistics to change is for more women to share their stories, their wisdom and their experiences with the world.
WOMEN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
ONE WORD AT A TIME
I’m on a mission to help 10,000 women aged 40+ share their story / message / vision with the world and I’d love you to be one of them.
Stories have the power to unite us, to make us feel less alone, to lift us up and inspire us to do things we never imagined. Stories, in every form, are full of magic.
Will you share yours?
