#makeitfair is a call for gender equality in the stories we tell, the wages we earn, and the future we shape. The goal is vast and so, as artists, the women behind #makeitfair decided to do what they do best: create. Our video displays the talent and passion of more than 70 women including Rita Wilson, Mamie Gummer, Annie Parisse, Kathleen Chalfant, Jessica Hecht and Orfeh, as well as an all-female production team, underscoring the wealth of female talent that often goes untapped.
The video was conceived and written by Patricia Noonan, Nadia Quinn, and Emily Tarver, and directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt. With original music by Zoe Sarnak and Nadia Quinn, music direction by Zoe Sarnak, cinematography and editing by Crystal Arnette, and produced by Patricia Noonan, Nadia Quinn, and Emily Tarver in association with Erica Rotstein.
In it, statistics highlighting gender inequality in everything from film roles to government leadership are interspersed with a beautifully satirical song, yearning for a world where men get to have 100% of everything.
As #makeitfair moves forward, the women involved will continue to raise awareness, ask tough questions, celebrate female talent, connect female artists to opportunities, laugh, create, and broaden the scope of the stories being told.
