Oxford Women's Leadership Alliance welcomes filmmakers driving global change

OWLA is honored to welcome two internationally acclaimed filmmakers who are using film as a tool to shape public conversations and ignite lasting change. 

Dawn Porter's Trapped, which won both a Peabody and Sundance Film Festival award, explores laws regulating abortion clinics in the American South and has been used to help propel reproductive rights conversations in countries across the globe.

Lindsey Dryden, a veteran of BBC, Channel 4, and The History Channel, produced 2017's Unrest, which highlights the power of human connection in the face of a life-altering, debilitating illness.

Please join Dawn and Lindsey for clips and conversation and learn how they use the power of film to give voice to the voiceless.
