Don't do video production? No problem! Write your story down. Add some sketches. Don't add some sketches - it is your story. Whether you type it or write it by hand, be sure to share it with us!
Whether you have made full-length features, or have just started learning video production - tell your story the best you can. We would love to include it here. Ask for our suggestions and guidelines.
We are all ears! Write in with your ideas and we'll help you tell your story.
We can't promise your story will be showcased; however, we intend to include stories either on our website or on social media.
Although change is occurring, most of what’s written, told, or shown remains men’s stories, we want to highlight women, we want women to share their stories. We want these stories to encourage girls and women (and boys and men!) everywhere and in many fields to join in and expand the resources about women. Simple stories like these can make a young woman consider her own path in a new light. Simple stories like these can contribute to inspiring girls and women in STEM careers. Simple stories like these may one day end the statement: “I didn’t know women were engineers/scientists…..” Become a member today to support and join in the creation of these stories. With this funding, Women’s Stories can fund production of more videos. There are so many stories to tell, help tell them.donate now
