The Spirit of Women: Sexism and Gender Equity in Whiskey
The biggest talents in bourbon and whiskey are names we rarely hear: Marianne Eaves, Victoria Butler and many others. These trailblazing powerhouses come together at SXSW to share their personal stories of survival and success in a business where men have taken the credit for centuries. Award-winning director Sarah Mossman has joined forces with Leigha Kinglsey to create The Spirit of Women, a documentary film about the women in whiskey and bourbon who have fearlessly taken on the establishment. This panel dives deep into a dark side of the first truly American spirit.
