Women's Work: Stories Behind the Movement

Women's Work, an original, multimedia series from Connecticut Public, features the stories of local women who share a common desire to be part of a collective effort – serving as leaders, trailblazers, artists, educators, advocates and entrepreneurs.

The series continues with six short films released weekly online and on social media. And Connecticut Public wants to include YOUR STORIES. Honor a sister, friend, mentor, mother or any woman who has made an impact on YOUR life, and we may feature your story online or on TV.  It's easy! Upload a photo and a brief story below!

HOST A SCREENING of Women's Work for Your Organization!

We provide materials to drive awareness about your event, post it on our own social media platforms, and get your audience fully engaged by sharing their own stories of inspiring women in their lives. Screening kits and access to the film are FREE!

HONOR A WOMAN whose work has inspired or challenged you! 

The first 50 stories chosen will receive two Connecticut Public "Women's Work" travel mugs
— one for you and one for gifting a hard-working friend.
