EVERY DAY IS #International Women’s Day HERE AT BIRDS’ EYE VIEW

International Women’s Day is powered by the collective efforts of all

Collective action and shared ownership for driving gender parity is what makes International Women’s Day impactful. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.” So make International Women’s Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay from us all here at BEV. We’ll be here 365 days a year campaigning for gender equality in film through industry programmes and #ReclaimTheFrame. We’ll continue to celebrate all the brilliant #filmsbywomen by spotlighting new releases including…
