Geena Davis is one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, appearing in several roles that became cultural landmarks. Earning the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama, Davis broke ground in her portrayal of the first female President of the United States in ABC’s hit show “Commander in Chief.” In 1989, Davis received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “The Accidental Tourist.” She was again nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe for her performance in “Thelma & Louise.” Davis went on to receive a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in “A League of Their Own.” Davis is now recognized for her tireless advocacy of women and girls nearly as much as for her acting accomplishments. She is the Founder and Chair of the non-profit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which engages film and television creators to dramatically increase the percentages of female characters – and reduce gender stereotyping – in media made for children 11 and under.
Katie is in the process of writing about her experience and what she learned from attending the series. COMING SOON.
