Terry’s Picks: #FreeTheBid, Aging Out, Female Veterans

#FreeTheBid: As part of a new #FreeTheBid pledge, some of the major ad agencies have promised to include at least one woman director in every bid put forward for ad campaigns.

Aging Out: A new California law will force IMDB to take down actor’s ages (on the actor’s request only). This is a great step toward protecting actors, particularly female ones, from missing out on roles, letting their talent influence casting choices rather than their actual date of birth.

Female Veterans: In this fantastic video from NYWIFT member and Documentary Committee Chair Marcia Rock, four female veterans tackle sexist misconceptions about women in combat.
