Together, We're Stronger Than Inequality
We are Hollywood's first gender equality studio, operating with the goal of equal representation within entertainment. We are unique in that we are owned by Hollywood professionals, business experts, ambassadors, partners, and the public, while also controlled 100% by women!

Why Are We Doing This
Women are underrepresented in entertainment, but instead of just talking about the atrocious statistics, we decided to do something about it. The best way to not fix a problem is to consistently talk about it but take zero action.
United Artists was started on February 5, 1919, and was mostly controlled by four actors. Gladys Mary Moore “Mary Pickford” was one of these actors and one of the first women to own a movie studio. It is said that Richard A. Rowland, head of Metro Pictures at the time, uttered the words, “The inmates are taking over the asylum.”
Ladies and gentleman, the inmates are not taking over the asylum, but THE WOMEN ARE. To solve the gender equality problem, we need more women in charge. You ask us, “Why are we doing this?” Our answer is a simple, “Why Not!”
“I do not wish them [women] to have power over men, but over themselves.”
― Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
The 7-1-7 Mandate
Our founders want to tackle this social issue head-on. Through initial discussions, we realized starting a studio and putting women in charge wasn’t enough. We needed a code to live by, something that is clear to understand, easy to follow, and something we can rally behind.
This code has come to be known as the 75, 100, 75 -- or “717.” The code is simple:
|75% of content produced will originate from a female writer, writing team, or lead writer.||100% of content produced will have a female director or directing team.||Producing team must consist of 75% women.|
These stories are for women by women, so all content will be focused in the areas that women want to see more of -- empowerment, love, family, etc.
“There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.”
