Our words have a tremendous impact on each other, often even without our awareness of it. This film explores the many ways women’s lives are impacted by microaggressions based on stereotypes and assumptions.
POWFest, MetroEast Community Media and The Faerie Godmother Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation have partnered to host POWGirls, filmmaking workshops for girls.
Our mission is to help girls 15-19 realize their power, creativity and voice in media production and encourage them to explore opportunities as future media-makers. We want to encourage girls to be creative, tech-savvy leaders who will help realize gender equity in media industries. We want to foster the POWER of WOMEN in MEDIA. POWGirls is a trans inclusive organization, supporting all girls in their media education. It is POWFest’s goal to be inclusive of all women’s voices, regardless of race, class, age, religion, ability, sexuality or gender expression.
