Terry’s Picks: Jennifer Lawrence, Writing Room, Women Calling the Shots

Raising Hell:
Lawrence’s scathing take-down of the Hollywood
gender pay gap
is just what we need – high profile women who can command serious
media attention need to bring this outrageous inequity to light. By the way,
she wrote it for Lena Dunham’s new Lenny Letter e-newsletter. You should subscribe – only a few
issues in, it’s featured great interviews with Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem
and more.

Writing Room:
& Hollywood talked to screenwriter
Emma Donoghue
about her “deeply feminist” film Room,
which she adapted from her novel. Many NYWIFT members attended free screenings
of this film last week – they say it’s incredibly powerful.

This is a fantastic time to join our dynamic community of successful
women calling the shots! Join
NYWIFT during our Fall Membership Drive
