We are so excited to bring you the screening of PIONEERS IN SKIRTS, a multi-award-winning social impact documentary film. Generously offered to our membership and guests as a way to raise funds for our educational scholarship, the film is about a journey to understand the bias and sexism that women confront in their careers, how it affects pioneering ambition, and what we ALL can do to evolve the culture past it.


Watch the film in the comfort of your home with your family.

You’ll be able to watch the movie on Thursday May 7 during the hours of noon – 7:30pm Eastern so that you will have time to watch this 60-minute film together

Chat with the filmmakers!

We will meet via Zoom promptly at 8pm Eastern for an interactive discussion with Director Ashley-Maria and Producer Lea-Ann Berst, so come ready with your questions! (Learn more about how to join a Zoom meeting here.)


This event is part of BPW/Triangle's efforts to raise funds for our scholarships, the core of our group's focus. Find out more about our scholarships here.

More about the film

Pioneers in Skirts is a relatable movie about why and how we can achieve gender parity in the workplace and in our culture. Using real people and industry subject matter experts, this film talks about how everyday people experience and combat stereotyping, sexism, and bias. Audiences connect to the problem individually, experience a broadened perspective of what’s really happening around them, and awaken with a sense of responsibility and empathy that empowers them to make a difference.
