March is #WomensHERtoryMonth! 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. We are incredibly proud of our producers, so this month we are showcasing some of the fabulous work created by the women of CMAC!
Edna is a long-time CMAC member and producer of the community talk show ‘Yo Soy!’.
