The Art of being Brave: Women in Film
A noteworthy event on December 2, 2015, at 7:00 pm hosted by the Commonwealth Club. Brenda Chapman and Zoë Elton, two predominate women, will be discussing film, animation, women’s leadership and how cartoons display essential aspects of our world and our roles within it. Brenda Chapman is an Academy Award-winning Director from Brave and Zoë Elton is the Director of Programming, Mill Valley Film Festival.
Just last month there was an initiative set into place by another organization, Women in Animation. They decided to set a goal to create job equality in the animation workforce by 2025. A lofty goal considering that the US is a dismal 28th on the global gender equality list, this may be a far cry to reach it. As it stands now, there are 4 men for every 1 women in the animation industry, roughly 20%……ouch.
