SUGGEST A SHOW
If your production (no readings, free events) has a creative team (writers, directors, designers) of at least 50% women and has a run of at least two weeks in a New York City venue, we would love to include it and maybe even bring our group to see it!
In 1993 Nigeria elected M.K.O. Abiola as president in a historic vote that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned as another military regime seized power, and his wife, Kudirat, took over the leadership of the pro-democracy movement, organizing strikes and marches and winning international attention for the Nigerian struggle. Because of this work, she too became a target and was assassinated in 1996. Director Joanna Lipper elegantly dovetails past and present as she tells this story through the eyes of Hafsat Abiola, who was about to graduate from Harvard when her mother was murdered. Her father died in prison two years later under mysterious circumstances. Determined not to let her parents' democratic ideals die with them, Hafsat returns to Nigeria after years in exile and is at the forefront of a progressive movement to empower women and dismantle the patriarchal structure of Nigerian society. THE SUPREME PRICE provides a unprecedented look inside of Africa's most populous nation, exposing the tumultuous, violent history of a deeply entrenched corrupt culture of governance where a tiny circle of political elites monopolize billions of dollars worth of oil revenue while the masses remain impoverished.

Advocacy journalism works! She reports exciting news and milestones for women on the culinary calendar:
FOOD & WINE DEDICATES JANUARY ISSUE TO WOMEN WHO RULE FOOD WORLD
Wettenstein's advocacy, letters and annual reports for more than a decade -- along with leading, outspoken women chefs -- have made a difference. The proof is in the pudding. Dana Cowin, longtime Editor In Chief of Food & Wine, called to tell her F&W will dedicate the January 2015 issue to the women who rule the food world.
CALL TO ACTION FOR WOMEN LEADERS: HOW TO SUPPORT WOMEN CHEFS AND RESTAURATEURS
Wettenstein is on a mission to urge women leaders and event planners to put your money where your mouth is and turn up the heat. Seek and support women chefs and restaurateurs when booking events and conferences. This is especially important for events honoring women and sponsored by women's organizations. She also recommends requesting and hiring female wait and bar staff, to support working women.
