A new Irish documentary inspired by the #WakingTheFeminists movement which looks at gender inequality in the Arts in Ireland – specifically after the Abbey Theatre’s Waking the Nation 2016 Centenary Programme included just one female playwright.

Director Sarah Corcoran writes:

We are currently crowdfunding and our deadline is this Friday. Today is our matchfund day, in which an anonymous funder has agreed to double any pledge made today until midnight in the hopes us pushing us closer to our target!

So whatever you give will be doubled!

We have some great perks up for grabs including a spot at a Feminist Panel in the Autumn, your name in the credits or a spot at filmmaking workshop.
