Now Available: FEMINISM INSHALLAH




The struggle for Muslim women's emancipation is often portrayed stereotypically as a showdown between Western and Islamic values, but Arab feminism has existed for more than a century. This groundbreaking documentary recounts Arab feminism's largely unknown story, from its taboo-shattering birth in Egypt by feminist pioneers up through viral Internet campaigns by today's tech-savvy young activists during the Arab Spring. Moving from Tunisia to Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, filmmaker and author Feriel Ben Mahmoud tracks the progress of Arab women in their long march to assert their full rights and achieve empowerment. Featuring previously unreleased archival footage and exclusive multigenerational interviews, FEMINISM INSHALLAH is an indispensable resource for Women's Studies, Global Feminism, Middle East and Islamic Studies.

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Crimes of the Heart, comes the breathtaking tall tale of Bess and Macon, two mail-order brides lured to the plains of Wyoming by the promise of new beginnings. Beth Henley's fierce and funny adventure spans a 25 year friendship as wild and unpredictable as the untamed West itself, unearthing along the way, the dark underside of American mythology and the unbreakable bonds of female friendship.

Feb 4, 2015 - Mar 15, 2015

There is a new immersive realm for the senses online, a virtual playground where those who plug in are coaxed into acting out their darkest fantasies--with no consequences in the "real" world. Or so it seems... until a young female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within--and outside of--this new frontier.

Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Jennifer Haley's The Nether is a haunting thriller that will make you question when the fantastic becomes too real.

Can there be laughter in the healing process? The lives of survivors, perpetrators, and bystanders weave together in a wickedly funny and piercingly insightful one woman show about a community trying to heal after a sexual assault. In Post Traumatic Super Delightful (PTSD), the personal is political, the political is personal. And the person is a clown.

Drinks With the Girls - 2/24 @ Pranna
 
Drinks With the Girls

Tuesday, February 24 | 7:00 pm 

In the media today you often read about how biased the arts still are. Female producers and directors are an anomaly even now, and don't even think about female technicians. So let's change it. Let's bring together all the smart talented women we know (and ones we don't), put us all in one space, and get some s**t done! 

The plan: Drinks! 

Most independent projects start out as just that: an idea over coffee or cocktails that then grows into a fully realized production. For thousands of years that's the way women have moved the world: get everyone together for some social time and let's talk. 

So we're starting an event once a month that brings together women from all over the arts. We'll find a bar, hunker down and just see what happens.

No agendas, no plans, just drinks with the girls.

Please join us for our kickoff night (our first one got snowed out last month):

Tuesday, February 24th, 7p-9p

Distorted gender roles damage both sexes. SPOILED dives beneath the unspoken truths of fathers and sons, brothers and lovers - both in America and India - in this solo play that uncovers the tangled, messy roots of violence against women by embodying the male point of view. Ripped from headlines that dominate the news in New York and New Delhi, this timely play grapples with burning issues such as military sexual assaults, college frat parties, impotent jobless boys, vulnerable child brides and infanticide. Through a lens that is compassionate yet clear-eyed, SPOILED reveals how rigid gender roles box in both sexes, with devastating consequences for all.

Only by understanding how your film fits within the larger social and political landscape can you begin to design your strategy and to understand the potential impact your campaign can have. Join us for a nuts and bolts conversation about the growing importance of these campaigns and how to go about crafting a game plan best suited to your project. Leading this workshop is Jennifer MacArthur, Founder of Borderline Media which brings together stakeholders and mediamakers to catalyze civic participation, social action and impact using social issue films.

ADVOCACYAdvocacy


Enact legislation guaranteeing women equal access & opportunity for employment in government funded arts organizations. 


Legislation should be enacted whereby any arts organization or institution that is receiving city, state or federal funding should be mandated to allocate an equitable portion of that funding to women artists, thereby ensuring that they receive grants and/or employment opportunities that are traditionally denied them. For example, in the American Theatre women receive less than 20% of production opportunities nationwide. With this new legislation, women theatre artists across the board-playwrights, directors, designers, etc. -would have a fair shot at working and/or creating in their chosen field. Commercial producers will continue to produce whomever they choose-man or woman. But, when government monies are involved there should be a mandate for parity in the disbursement of those dollars.






MEMBER CORNERMEMBER

In MEMBER CORNER, members of Works by Women can share productions they are working on which feature many women artists, but either have a run of less than 2 weeks or do not meet the 50/50 writer, director, design team Works by Women requires. If you would like your project to be included please email info@worksbywomen.org with the subject "Member Corner and Title of Your Show"

A Fairly Fractured Tale 
Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Snow White are triplets who are stolen by an angry witch.  When she casts an evil spell, each sister is catapulted into her own fractured fairytale -- Rapunzel craves junk food, Cinderella has self-esteem issues, Snow White is allergic to apples, and each dreams of being rescued by a handsome Prince.  Will they be saved?  Of course!  Beau, Barry, and Burly Bob may be a little more bashful and bumbling than bright, but with the help of the Fairy Tailor and some magic spells, they all live happily ever after!

Dixon Place

SUNDAY FEB 8 AT 7:00PM

Three Times Fast is a new musical with book and lyrics by Naomi Matlow and music and lyrics by Teresa Lotz. The show follows the coming of age of fifteen year old Olivia Klemons as she wades through the stress of high school, her mother's remarriage, a move to a new house and her fresh diagnosis with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  As Olivia faces her deepest fears through therapy with Dr. West, she uncovers strength she never knew she had. Through Olivia's struggles and recoveries, her family members contemplate the habits that they have created to help them get through the day with a feeling of greater control over life's uncertainties.
 
Suggest a Show

If your production (no readings, free events) has a creative team (writers, directors, designers) of at least 50% women and has a run of at least two weeks in a New York City venue, we would love to include it and maybe even bring our group to see it!

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY
w/ NYWIFT & WMM


Please join us on Sunday, December 7 at 7:15 p.m.
At the Landmark Sunshine Cinema for a Special Presentation of:
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY

Followed by a Q&A with Producer/Director Mary Dore,
Producer Nancy Kennedy &
Exec Producers Elizabeth Dreihaus & Pamela Tanner Boll

This special celebration of women filmmakers
is co-presented by: 
Women in the Arts & Media Coalition
New York Women in Film & Television 
Women Make Movies
The Chicken & Egg Pictures Team
Fork Films Team 

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. 

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, when ladies wore hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!).

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL aims not to romanticize the early movement, but to dramatize it in its exhilarating, quarrelsome, sometimes heart-wrenching glory. The film does not shy away from the controversies over race, sexual identity and leadership that arose in the women's movement.

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY captures the spirit of the time -- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.

Today's Modern American Woman - A Roundtable Discussion at Museum of the City of NY



The 1950s image of the “modern American woman” was created by illustrators like Mac Conner, whose leisured 

ladies with svelte figures and perfectly coiffed hair filled women’s magazines like Redbook and McCall’s. 

Today’s women face a different set of prescriptions from the media, now increasingly focused on their role in the workforce and the extent to which they can “lean in” or achieve “work/life balance.” Join a group of communications and marketing industry leaders to discuss how working women are presented in 2014. With Leslie Yazel, Executive Editor at Cosmopolitan magazine; Joanna Barsh, Director Emeritus at McKinsey & Company; Linda Descano, President and CEO, Women & Co., and Managing Director and Head of Content and Social, Citi; and Stacy-Marie Ishmael, VP of Communities at Financial Times. Moderated by Ashley Milne-Tyte, NPR/Marketplace correspondent and host of podcast series The Broad Experience. 

Co-sponsored by ADC, the Let’s Make The Industry 50/50 Initiative, and New York Women in Communications.

As the year comes to a close, we are offering an incredible first time discount on our 2014 collection: 15% off any 2014 new release!*  These titles cover a diverse range of subjects and contemporary topics from critical human rights issues, to African American and feminist studies. See highlights and bestsellers from the 2014 collection below. 

Nominated for four Australian Academy Awards including Best Documentary and Best Director, I AM A GIRL follows six different girls -- divided by origin, economics, ethnicity and access to education -- as they inch closer to adolescence, defining what it means to be a girl in the 21st century.
LIVING THINKERS: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower examines the intersection of race, class and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. 

In 1961, over 250,000 Cubans joined their country's National Literacy Campaign and taught more than 707,000 other Cubans to read and write. MAESTRA highlights the will and courage that made the monumental endeavor possible and the pivotal role of women's and youth empowerment in building a new society.


Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, FEMINIST STORIES FROM WOMEN'S LIBERATION brings the momentous first decade of second-wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movement's full blossoming in 1970.
Weaving together over 100 archival educational films, science fiction and homage to 70s feminist filmmaking, THE MOTHERHOOD ARCHIVES is a lyrical essay film on the hidden history of childbirth in the 20th century.

---------------
During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency', an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality - little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Directed by Morten Tyldum with a screenplay by Graham Moore, the film stars BenedictCumberbatchKeira KnightleyMatthew GoodeRory KinnearAllen LeechMatthew BeardCharles Dance and Mark Strong.
