NATIVE WOMEN IN FILM IN HOLLYWOOD TAKE ON THE SUBJECT OF MURDERED & MISSING WOMEN and Lack of Inclusion in film and television.
#WhyWeWearRED A National Global Call to Action initiative that aims to bring awareness to Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, fight sexual harassment, assault, inequality for women in all kinds of workplaces, including Native Women in FILM & Television.
Native Women in FILM encourages supporters everywhere to wear RED and/or share our hashtag #WhyWeWearRED as a show of unity and empowerment.
“We are going into our 16th year of non-inclusion of Native actresses on episodic television,” – stated founder of Native Women in FILM, actress and member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Art Sciences (AMPAS). “16 years since America has seen a native actress on television in any role, be it star, guest star, co-star, or extra etc. #TimesUP. When American Indian & Indigenous women are invisible in media and in American society that implies we don’t matter, our lives don’t matter. I am a survivor of sexual assault, I was kidnapped and drugged to the point of unconsciousness, in a blurred moment, I was able to talk them in to letting me go. I am here to tell my story and speak for the ones who can’t — Not One More Stolen Sister.” #WhyWeWearRED
