WGGB (Writers’ Guild of Great Britain) is hosting a webinar on Mon, 22 May 2023 17:00 – 18:00 which will explore how far the fortunes of women screenwriters have changed since the launch of its Equality Writes campaign.
WGGB write that “Much has happened since we launched the campaign – we’ve had four different Prime Ministers, a global pandemic, and we are now facing a cost-of-living crisis. But what impact have our report and campaign had on the TV and film industries? Where was our campaign a success, and what more can we do to achieve greater diversity for women writers? The panel will be made up of some of the members and activists – Lisa Holdsworth (chair), Olivia Hetreed, Sumerah Srivastav and Emma Reeves – who made this campaign possible.”
