Purpose of Fundraiser: Ashley Maria, a long-time Business and Professional Women's Club member and Director of upcoming documentary film "Pioneers in Skirts," will represent BPW at this year's United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women -- to be held March 11-22, 2019. With this honor comes great responsibility. As the North American BPW delegate, Ashley is tasked to engage in conversations surrounding women's equality on an international scale.

Also with this honor comes great expense. And, what better way to help raise the funds needed to send Ashley to NYC than with a Private Screening of Ashley's new film "Pioneers in Skirts?!"

Pioneers in Skirts follows Ashley's journey as she travels the country exposing the sexism and bias women are forced to maneuver in their careers, and how we as a culture can push the conversation forward to progress toward equality.
