Happy Women’s History month, everyone! Whether you or a woman you love is in show business or you just love hearing the inspiring stories of women empowering women to achieve their dreams, please join Mindy, Michelle and JD as they go one-on-one with entertainment industry powerhouse, Gretchen McCourt, the co-founder and creative genius behind the much acclaimed and much needed  "Women in Entertainment” organization. It’s no secret Hollywood has been far from an even playing field for women. Just look at the dismal history of female filmmakers at the Academy Awards. In its 93-year existence only one women, Kathryn Bigelow, has ever won the Oscar for directing. Its statistics like this and countless other inequities and failings of the entertainment industry to properly and fairly represent women that, in 2015 led McCourt and partner, Renee Rossi to create a non-profit dedicated to bringing together forward-thinkers from all areas of the entertainment industry to explore a variety of topics that impact women: from human rights and women’s leadership, to storytelling across platforms and empowering the next generation of women to emerge as creative powerhouses.   See for privacy information.
