Nancy Schwartzman, Filmmaker
Talk about an accomplished, creative, committed woman! A globally recognized human rights advocate, Nancy Schwartzman also happens to be a director, producer, and media strategist. She uses storytelling and technology to create safer communities for women and girls. Her debut documentary, “Roll Red Roll,” chronicles the sexual assault of a teenage girl by several members of a revered high school football team in the tight-knit community of Steubenville, Ohio. This searing, visceral, awarding winning film goes behind the scenes to expose the ‘boys will be boys’ culture. Nancy also created the White House award winning app, Circle of 6, aimed at reducing sexual violence among America’s youth. This is one conversation you won’t want to miss.
