Program Aims To Give Underserved Women Filmmakers Same Opportunities As Men

One of the Internet’s most exciting potentials is as a great equalizer, be that in politics, the arts or as a means to give women around the world a voice, a connection and power unlike any democratizing force before it.

Women’s Annex is an online interactive Web TV platform created by Film Annex that promotes and supports women’s empowerment with videos, instructional programs, and blog stories about education, arts, business, sports, and a variety of other topics. With more than 35,000 professional films and videos on its platform, Women’s Annex encourages women in developing countries and other parts of the world to be financially independent self-starters. The platform enables women to self distribute and monetize their film and written content.
