Madeline Di Nonno

Q&A to follow with featured panelists including, Madeline Di Nonno, Executive Producer and CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.

"If women are continually depicted as one-dimensional, side-lined, stereotyped, hypersexualized, not given leadership roles or simply absent, it sends a very clear message: women and girls are not as important as men and boys. And that has an enormous impact on business and society." - Geena Davis, writer, producer, Academy Award and Golden Globe winning actor, and founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.

About the Documentary

Told first-hand by some of Hollywood's leading voices in front and behind the camera, This Changes Everything is a feature-length documentary that uncovers what is behind one of the most confounding dilemmas in the entertainment industry - the underrepresentation and misrepresentation of women. It takes an incisive look at the history, empirical evidence, and systematic forces that foster gender discrimination and thus reinforce disparity in our culture. Most importantly, the film seeks pathways and solutions from within and outside the industry, and around the world.

Featuring: Geena Davis, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Taraji P. Henson, Reese Witherspoon, Cate Blanchett, Jill Soloway, Shonda Rhimes, Yara Shahidi, Chloe Moretz, Amandla Stenberg, Alan Alda, Sandra Oh, Anita Hill, Jessica Chastain, Rose McGowan, Judd Apatow, Rosario Dawson 

"In order for true systemic change to happen, it has to be inclusive. Everyone has to come with it. A change needs to happen immediately." - Cate Blanchett, actor and director
