#BreakingTheGlass co-producer and Radio Film School regular Yolanda Cochran wants to call B.S. on proposed solutions for gender inequality.
One of the goals that Yolanda and I have for this special series is finding concrete solutions to the whole gender inequality issue in the entertainment business. One solution that is often bandied about (and in fact was an impetus for this mini-series) is for women to adopt more of the headstrong, confident, dare I say, “aggressive” tendencies of their male counterparts. But in this special bonus episode, Yolanda shares a heartfelt and personal sentiment that makes her want to call bullsh*t on that notion. It’s a short episode, so I really encourage you to take the ten minutes or so and hear what she has to say.
We’d love to hear YOUR story as it relates to what Yolanda shares. Feel free to do so anonymously if you so desire. You can email us your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you’re so inclined, send a voice memo to that email address, or leave a voicemail at the bottom of this page. Your story just might be what some woman out there needs to hear right now to change their whole life.
