Virtual See Jane Salon – Women Over 50: The Right to Be Seen on Screen

 

Friday, November 12, 2021
12 noon PT | 3:00 pm ET

The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media has conducted the first-of-its-kind, in-depth research study analyzing the intersectional representation of women and age in media. This report will be used to advocate for more balanced, diverse, and aspirational portrayal of older women in new media projects and to harness the power of entertainment media for culture change: shifting the way that we as a society think about and value aging adults and ensuring that we all have the chance to thrive as we age.

The November 12th event marked the premiere release of the report and online attendees heard from a panel of experts who shared their insights and offered sound advice on how they’ve successfully navigated the Industry and advocate for Women over 50.

This research was made possible by the support of The NextFifty Initiative.

For See Jane Members Only: The on-demand video of the event is now available online.
