About the Production:

Our world is constantly changing, and becoming more progressive everyday, but there are still traditions and ideals that are holding women back. Women have changed the work force. We have changed the perception of traditional family structures, and we’ve even redefined what it means to “have it all”. And yet through all these accomplishments, we still struggle to have our voices heard. This film is my chance to tell the stories of everyday women, a dialogue that should include both men and women in order to change the experiences of generations to come.
