In the film 50/50, Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain explores the 10,000 year history of women + power and asks, where are we really on the greater arc of history of women and power? And what’s it going to take to get to a #5050 world — not just politics and board rooms, but truly shifting the gender balance to be better for everyone.
The film premiered live at #TEDWomen on Oct 27th and to 275 TEDx’s globally and online on @Refinery29 and on TV on Comcast.
