We are honored that UNLADYLIKE2020 has been awarded the competitive "Made In NY" Women's Film, TV & Theatre Fund grant from the City of New York Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), the centerpiece of a groundbreaking series of initiatives by MOME to address the underrepresentation of women in film, television, and theatre, administered by New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). This is the inaugural year for the program, and it is the very first municipal grant program of its kind in the U.S. You can learn more about the fund from the press release here.
Congratulations to our fellow grantees! Our series creator, Charlotte Mangin, and our development and impact producer, Kathy Leichter, had a wonderful time at the Made in NY awards reception meeting the other grantees, a talented group of women film and theater makers, and learning about their projects. Anne del Castillo, Media and Entertainment Acting Commissioner said, this year’s projects “portray the complexity and variety of human experience as told by an incredibly diverse group of women.”

This grant will support production of our film about Rose Schneiderman (1882-1972), a passionate labor organizer from New York's Lower East Side. Thank you, MOME and NYFA!
