    Great Interview With Glenn Close

    A really great homage to her whole career on the eve of the Oscar nominations. She willed Albert Nobbs into existence. She is the star, the producer, the co-writer and she also write the lyrics to the song. Pretty impressive.

    A View from the Trenches: Is Estrogen My Last Hurdle to Success?

    I blame my Midwestern roots for my optimistic views and somewhat naivé outlook on my career in Hollywood. Hard work reaps rewards so any hurdle I saw was positive because it made me a better producer, a better writer and a better director. I can overcome hurdles or at the very least, learn from the...

    The Invisible War: New Poster

    Haunting- Film Premieres at Sundance. Here's the trailer. I love the tag line. The battle ground is your barracks. These are women dedicating themselves to serving the US and they are being raped by their fellow soldiers. Horrific. Can't wait to see this one.

    Guest Post: Women War & Peace: Bosnian Women Testify for Change By Pamela Hogan

    For eight years as a founding producer of PBS’s award-winning international documentary series WIDE ANGLE, I made it my mission to expand coverage of under-reported global women’s issues.
