Works by Women

Supporting creative work by women

WBW Brief: December 12, 2016


The latest news about women on stage and screen from around the world:

ICYMI: A lovely profile on Ummiye Kocak (pictured above) and her rural Turkish women’s theater troupe Arslankoy Women’s Theatre Group by Al Arabiya English.

Good Read: The Guardian looks at the upcoming film Hidden Figures and the real life African American women scientists–Katherine JohnsonMary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan– who put John Glenn in orbit.

The Future: The Hollywood Reporter reports on a fantastic mentoring and scholarship program for young women. Read to the bottom. I dare you not to be moved by high school senior Citlali’s letter to her mentor.

ICYMI, Part 2: Terrific piece by The Globe and Mail about gender parity in Canadian filmmaking.

Opportunity: Nora’s Playhouse, a theater company devoted to producing women’s work in New York and Alabama, has an open call for its monthly reading salon in New York City. Check out guidelines for submission HERE.
