Terry’s Picks: Influential Women, Jill Soloway, Loreen Arbus

Influential Women: Our friends at B&H, with support from Canon and Sony, are running a wonderful Women of Influence series, an inspirational look at the talent, drive and perseverance that forged some remarkable photographic and filmmaking careers.

Jill Soloway: In her keynote address at SXSW, Jill Soloway addressed challenges – and solutions – to hiring women in Hollywood.

Loreen Arbus: Disability rights activist, philanthropist, producer, writer and author Loreen Arbus, who funds the NYWIFT Loreen Arbus Disability Awareness Grant, talks about the inspiration behind her career and dedication to inclusion. She says she always “remained mindful of the fact that difference was recognized as a problem, not as simply another indicator of distinction, of individuality, one of many facets of a person. After all, our common humanity is larger than any difference, whether inborn or acquired.”
