Created as part of a month long series to drive awareness for the way women use Facebook Groups, Facebook's International Women's Day manifesto celebrated the best of the world renowned platform.
"It's often easy for representation to feel like a box ticking exercise that falls short of real change, but with this job I had the client's full support in pushing for a female crew. I came away even more assured that at the end of the day, gender is irrelevant to ability. The real work we're doing when we lift each other up is in fact increasing and diversifying the pool of talent within the industry."
Through a combination of UGC and careful casting, this film brought together voices from across the platform; from sewers working to end period poverty to mountaineers hiking in the face of discrimination.
