CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HERSTORY MONTH
March is #WomensHERstoryMonth! CMAC is celebrating and supporting women’s work in media by sharing our members’ work! Unfortunately, women are not seen in the media as often as men. This lack of accurate representation on and off screen diminishes women’s contributions in the media industry and perpetuates harmful stereotypes. That’s why we’re proud to showcase the outstanding work created by the talented women of CMAC! Check out our website this month to discover some amazing content created by our female producers. Let’s celebrate the amazing achievements of women in media!
