THE 49%

Women are the disruptors of their societies and the agents of social change. We, The 49%, believe that women must tell their stories in order for the status quo to change. Storytelling is an act of courage. Our film festivals and content feature powerful and engaging stories about women, their struggles, and their inspiring successes.
