Yesterday was International Women’s Day. To that, I say why not International Women’s Weekend, Week, Month, Year, or Century?
In my humble opinion, as a man, as an artist, as the founder of this business, I am 100% convinced that our planet would be a better, more sustainable, and more peaceful place if women ruled the world. We should be celebrating and fighting for the equal rights and power of women every day.
That’s why Wool Hat Creative, aka WHC, is very dedicated to our mission of “making the world a better place” and that includes elevating the status of women however we can through the media we produce.
Here's some examples of amazing women in the work we've done recently:
Our latest film, Human Power: The Backcountry Snowsports Initiative, has played over 100 times around the world in the Backcountry Film Festival and is about a winter sports group led by a very inspiring and dedicated woman, Julie Mach (pictured above).
During the 2018 elections, we made a video featuring Presidential candidate, John Hickenlooper, then Colorado Governor, endorsing Brittany Pettersen who won her race for State Senate and is fighting for the environment, better drug policies, and more!
A largely women-led training by the organization Colorado Common Cause - an organization helmed by Executive Director and recent “40 Under 40” recipient in Denver, Amanda Gonzalez.
A candidate and volunteer summit for 2018 in Denver featuring many of the women that won their races in the midterms alongside now Governor Polis - America’s first openly gay governor - and others such as now State Senators Kerry Donovan, Faith Winter, Brittany Pettersen, and Tammy Story, as well as Secretary of State Jena Griswold to name a few now in office changing the world.
We captured video for the incredibly tenacious former US Representative Gabby Giffords calling for common-sense gun laws at an event with now US Representative Jason Crow.
We photographed a trail cleanup organized by Patagonia, Environment Colorado, and the Clean Water Network and others where more than half of the organizers and volunteers were women.
I mean, let’s face it. Women do so much of the best work in the world and we need more of it.
Rest assured that I and WHC will to continue to elevate and celebrate women through film, photography, writing, and art. So, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know how we can help make this world a better place.
Go forth and conquer!
