This strong statement opens the new In the Game demo, released today via YouTube. Producer/Director Maria Finitzo's film takes on the legacy of Title IX, stating "in our country, who gets to play and who does not is a yardstick by which we measure how close we are to achieving the goals of a democracy."
The film, due to be released in 2012 - the 40th anniversary of Title IX - follows three stories: the WNBA team Chicago Sky, the Kelly High School Women's Soccer Team, and the Fair Shot New Media Institute. Production has been ongoing this summer after a successful Kickstarter campaign. The film now needs finishing funds, which you can help provide with a donation. Take a stand for Girls!
