Turner Classic Movies (TCM) today announced Trailblazing Women, a multi-year initiative created to raise awareness about the historical contributions of women working behind the camera. The programming event, hosted by actress, producer and director Illeana Douglas, premieres October 1 and airs every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the entire month, and will shine a spotlight on cinema’s greatest female filmmakers and women who challenged gender stereotypes while carving out successful careers in an industry where men hold the bulk of the power.

The Trailblazing Women initiative marks a multi-year partnership between TCM and Women In Film (Wif), Los Angeles that will showcase the current gender gap in the film industry as statistics prove a lack of parity in positions behind the camera such as:

Men outnumbered women 23-to-1 as directors of the 1,300 top-grossing films since 2002

A 5–to-1 ratio of men working on films to women

15 percent »
