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.
