As legalization spreads, cannabis is one of the fastest-growing industries in the nation. It is also an industry led by women, who hold 36% of leadership positions—against a national average of 23%. This means marijuana has the highest gender parity of any industry in the United States. Director Windy Borman takes a look at some of the women leading the charge, lovingly called “puffragettes,” and the effects this revolution has on environmental stability, ending the War on Drugs, and the prison-industrial complex—as well as the destructive domination of Big Pharma. Attendees include Leah Maurer, founder of Moms for YES and co-owner of the Weed Blog; Sara Batterby, CEO and founder of the Equity Capital Collective and founder of HiFi Farms; Madeline Martinez, Executive Director of Oregon NORML; Trista Okel, founder and CEO of Empower BodyCare; and director Windy Borman. Come early for a reception prior to the screening in the sculpture garden at the Portland Art Museum.
