MISSION

Bechdel Babes Writing Partners is a female writers group dedicated to providing a space in which members feel empowered to express their creativity and take risks.  Our primary goal is to create stories that fully reflect the diverse voices of the female experience.  However, equally important is our goal to form a partnership with our members for the purpose of advancing careers in the  industry.   By building a community of  female writers, we hope to create a destination for producers, directors, and actresses to find powerful, female driven content.
