The Female Lens: Creating Change Beyond the Bubble

In post-election America, we all want to go “beyond the bubble”—to reach audiences and change minds outside of NYC screening rooms or film-festival panels. Film is uniquely positioned to do just that, and female directors, writers, and actors are using their work to change the perception of women onscreen and off in real world ways. Glamour will gather four female creators to talk about how films do (and don’t) alter perceptions of women across America. Part of Glamour’s “Powered by Women” initiative, this conversation is a don’t-miss for anyone who cares about changing the world.
