Website Launch: Action!
Action! promotes the employment of female professionals in the audiovisual field, develops measures to remove obstacles and supports women’s employment in the sector. Over the past few years, it has become clear that gender
equality in the Finnish audiovisual industry is realized poorly or not at all. Inequality is an obvious barrier and women's unused creative and professional competence is an untapped potential.
Equality-related information is unavailable because the industry has not kept statistics. This demonstrates the authorities’ and the industry’s lack of interest in gender issues. This has rendered any solutions to alter the gender imbalance impactless.
The three-year project will be carried in partnership with Aalto University School of Art and Design, Department of Film and Scenography and Women in Film and Television Finland (WIFT Finland).
