Queen Latifah to Kickstart Film Making Initiative For Women

Queen Latifah wants to make sure that that female film makers are able to tell their story with no hesitation… She is partnering with Proctor & Gamble to launch the Queen collective, an initiative designed for female film makers.

According to People.com:

Latifah tells PEOPLE she felt compelled to start the program after her own challenges in Hollywood as a woman of color facing prejudice.

“I think it’s a continuing narrative in Hollywood, unfortunately, and we want to change that entire narrative,” she says. “We want to even the playing field a little bit. Partnering up with P&G for the Queen Collective has been an amazing thing. This is kind of one step of the plan to make things a little different.”

Queen Latifah said her late mother Rita Ownes was a source of inspiration for the project.
