Dana Wilsey discovered her passion for women's rights while volunteering at a hidden women's shelter in the Guatemalan countryside. A graduate of Drexel University, with a degree in International Studies: Human Rights & Justice, she began her role as the brand manager for the award-winning documentary film Honor Diaries, produced by Paula Kweskin, which was the catalyst for significant dialogue about global women's rights abuses.

Dana served as the festival coordinator for the Censored Women's Film Festival, which she helped to shape and run with Paula, and went on to become the director of marketing for an international nonprofit organization that saves the lives of children from developing countries with cardiac disease. She has worked at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and now she has returned to the women's rights and film arena as the COO of The 49%.
