Celebrating women in media

Celebrating women in media

Published 18 Mar 2019 by Lorraine Gwewera

Lorraine Gwewera, Digital Strategist at The MediaShop

In the wake of International Women’s Day, I found myself thinking about where we as the media industry stand when it comes to feminism. I decided it was a chance for us to celebrate some of the female trailblazers within the media space.

Women have come a long way and we clap hands to trail blazers such as Patty Jenkins, the only female director to direct a film with a budget of over $150 million. Patty directed both Monsterand Wonder Woman and is also set to direct Wonder Woman 1984. We love a movie with a strong female lead, and that gives Generation Z a balanced idea of superhero’s whether they’re male or female.
