We Do It Together curated a panel at the United Nations

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

On March 3rd, some of the amazing cast and talented directors from our film "Tell It Like A Woman" had the privilege to join We Do It Together for a panel discussion at the General Assembly of the United Nations. We were honored to contribute to the global dialogue on women in entertainment and to showcase the empowering stories of our participants.

It was sobering to hear that the United Nations estimates that it will take 300 years to achieve gender parity, which means equal opportunities and representation for all genders in all areas of life. We cannot accept such a timeline, as it perpetuates injustice, inequality, and systemic biases that harm half of the world's population.


This is why We Do It Together, a non-profit organization that champions gender equality in media and culture through the power of storytelling is so important. By intentionally creating and promoting films, TV shows, and other media that challenge stereotypes, break barriers, and amplify diverse voices, we can accelerate progress toward a more inclusive and equitable world.


We believe that representation matters, that visibility matters, and that empathy matters. By telling authentic and compelling stories that reflect the complexity and richness of human experiences, we can inspire empathy, understanding, and action. We can also give voice to those who have been marginalized, silenced, or misrepresented in mainstream media, and we can pave the way for a new generation of storytellers who can continue to expand the boundaries of creativity and inclusivity.
