Women are changing the face of today’s fastest growing industry – cannabis. Join filmmaker Windy Borman as she explores the movement to end cannabis prohibition, her own relationship to the plant, and the stereotypes surrounding it. Through a series of empowering and educational interviews with a broad diversity of women leading the industry today, Windy’s own assumptions are transformed as she discovers cannabis liberation intersects with the most urgent social justice issues of our time. She learns how this green revolution has big effects on environmental sustainability, ending the War on Drugs and the Prison-Industrial Complex, and the destructive domination of Big Pharma.
The first new industry to emerge in the 21st century is led by women. According to a recent cannabis Business Daily study, women hold 36% of leadership positions across the cannabis industry. The national average is 22%. This means cannabis has the highest amount of gender parity in any industry in the United States. In fact, Newsweek predicts that cannabis could be the first billion-dollar industry dominated by women.
Over half of the United States has legalized medical cannabis. Clearly, we’re at a tipping point, and “The Women of Weed” could make cannabis legal nationwide, reform the criminal justice system, empower disenfranchised communities, and give life saving medicine to children and veterans, all while building gender equality into a billion-dollar industry. We call this the Puffragette™ Movement. Learn more: http://maryjanesfilm.com
MARY JANES: THE WOMEN OF WEED, is a groundbreaking, feature-length documentary film that follows female "ganjaprenueres" as they navigate the highs and lows of the legal cannabis industry in the U.S. Cannabis' leaders are celebrated by Windy Borman in this film, which is making the festival rounds and has yet to be officially released. More than three dozen women (including Melissa Etheridge) speak about their roles in the new industry and older movement.
