Video from BAVC's 2007 Producers Institute for New Media Technologies. (http://www.bavc.org/producersinstitute) PRODUCER/DIRECTOR Virginia Williams Team: Steve Armstrong http://www.womenrule.tv/ In "Frontrunner," Emmy-award winning documentary producer Virginia Williams tells the story of Dr. Massouda Jalal, Afghanistan's only woman candidate for President in their first-ever democratic election. At the Producers Institute, Virginia developed the Women Who Rule website – an interactive, online toolkit designed to teach young girls leadership skills. In response to the Barbie-infused websites that connect girls around gossip, clothes and makeup, the Women Who Rule site provides a space where they learn how to organize in their communities, upload original video content, (and share it via cell phones), even join a party and “run for President.” In one section of the site, women leaders from all over the world are pictured in a live mosaic of images, and as you scroll over an image, you learn about that particular leader through text and streaming video. Empty squares prompt you to upload your own project about a leader from your community.
