Tell Us Your Story

Are you a woman director? Tell us your story.

Have you been refused jobs despite being qualified? Have you been told that a show doesn’t want women directors or won’t hire more than one? Have you consistently been given less episodes than your male peers? Have you encountered barriers to your career because of discrimination against women in directing? 

Gender disparities in film and TV directing are striking and have not improved over the last 30 years. If you are a director who has been discriminated against, excluded from directing jobs in television or get less TV work than your male peers, we’d love to hear your story to learn more about the experiences of women in the directing industry. Please tell us your story below.
