Free Women

“A woman who is liberated can achieve anything she sets her mind to.”

— Vineesha Arora-Sarin, filmmaker & founder, WISE

A revolutionary and empowering movement and initiative by WISE to promote social equality and justice for women through film and television by supporting and spotlighting stories that help end women’s oppression. The “Free Women” initiative is a movement by WISE that aims to promote social justice for women by telling their stories through film and television. The industry highlights women’s issues, including gender inequality, gender-based violence, and discrimination. WISE believes that sharing these stories with a global audience can help raise awareness about women’s challenges and work towards creating a more equal and just society.

To promote the “Free Women” initiative, WISE plans to take a couple of steps. First, we will partner with established and emerging filmmakers, screenwriters, and other creatives to support films and television shows focusing on women’s experiences. These stories will be authentic, empowering, and diverse, representing women’s perspectives from different cultures and backgrounds.

Second, WISE will collaborate with film festivals and other industry events to showcase these films and shows. By providing a platform for these stories, we aim to reach a wider audience and generate meaningful discussions about the issues faced by women. 


Equal Pay 4 Equal Play

The Equal Pay for Equal Play initiative aims to promote and achieve fair and equal wages for women in the entertainment industry. The initiative seeks to raise awareness about the existing wage gap and create a platform for women to negotiate and receive salaries that are on par with their male counterparts.

WISE will help create awareness for the Equal Pay for Equal Play initiative through various means, such as:

  1. Social media campaigns

  2. Events, conferences and panel discussions

  3. Partnerships with organizations and advocacy groups working towards the exact cause

  4. Educational/ informational programs
