NYC Women: The new website women.nyc was designed by a team of women, for women, to help them navigate parenthood, afford living in NYC and ask for a raise. 

Easy Promises: Dr. Martha Lauzen discusses why while promises of inclusion for women at film festivals is easy, actual change is hard.

Decent Odds: A breakthrough 14 of the 42 broadcast drama pilots this year were directed by women (as opposed to just one last year, and only two the year before). Of those 14, eight of them – or 57% – went to series. Deadline breaks down the statistics.
