Terry’s Picks: Data Driven, Amal Ramsis, Women’s Movement

Data Driven: With support from Google.org’s Global Impact Challenge, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media teamed up with Google to develop software that accurately measures how often we see and hear women on-screen.

Amal Ramsis: Here is a wonderful profile of Amal Ramsis, founder of the Cairo International Women’s Film Festival.

Women’s Movement: Check out ESPN’s short film When I Play, created by women filmmakers in honor of Women’s History Month, which gives voice to every female athlete who “sees their movement as a movement.”
