064 / Representation in Entertainment with Laura Hunter Drago

Released Wednesday, 4th August 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Who doesn’t love a good movie? Getting lost in a story or having a good cry, disconnecting from everyday life, just to be entertained.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to recognize how our entertainment reinforces stereotypes and gender expectations.

On this episode, I’m joined by Laura Hunter Drago - Award Winning Film Producer, Member of SAG AFTRA and Women In Media, and Assistant Editor in Chief of Ms. In The Biz. Laura co-founded New Girl Pictures, a production company that’s committed to getting women into positions both in front of and behind the camera.

Representation does matter and we need women in key roles that will share our stories honestly and with care. I for one am excited to see women with complex, full and imperfect lives. And for the love of God, more women who go to bed without a full set of makeup on...who does that?!

It’s time we hear the real stories of real women, and I guarantee it will be plenty entertaining.

This Is Woman’s Work.
