Women's History Month
Throughout the month of March, Women and Girls Lead and Eileen Fisher, Inc. celebrate Women’s History Month by launching #SheDocs, an online film festival showcasing 12 documentaries that highlight extraordinary women and their accomplishments. This month-long festival presents a collection of films by prominent independent filmmakers that focus on women and girls who are transforming their lives, their communities, and the world. There is no other online film festival that brings documentary film about women and girls to U.S. online audiences for free!
Watch films online, participate in the conversation, or host a screening event, and be inspired by remarkable and true stories about women and girl agents of change!
