Erin Bagwell is a filmmaker and feminist blogger residing in Brooklyn, New York. In 2013 she founded Feminist Wednesday, a feminist storytelling blog. In the summer of 2014 she launched a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising over $100,000 in funding to produce her first feature length film Dream, Girl.
In May 2016, Dream, Girl screened at the White House as part of the United State of Women Summit followed by a sold out screening at the iconic Paris Theater in New York City.
Erin’s story has been featured in Forbes, TED, Vogue, and The Washington Post and she was named one of Oprah’s SuperSoul100 a list featuring extraordinary individuals that live life intentionally, create great social impact, and bring inspiration to others.
In 2017, Erin was selected to be part of the American Film Showcase, which is part of the U.S. Department of State in coordination with U.S. embassies and consulates. They send American documentarians on trips to various countries around the globe to engage with audiences. Through her work with the showcase, Erin has travelled to Tajikistan and Egypt to screen Dream, Girl and lead filmmaking workshops.
Back at home, Erin co-hosts a weekly podcast called BeaverTalk with Diana Matthews, where they give Hollywood unsolicited advice about feminism. Episodes are released every Feminist Wednesday.
Dream, Girl was released on YouTube May 9th, and was named the number one feminist documentary to watch by the Huffington Post.
Erin has previously
The best part of the night was having Erin there for Q&A after the film.
“The audience had so many questions for Erin that we had to cut them off or we never would have gone home – that’s how engaging she was! Thank you, Erin, for making our event a night that will be remembered for years to come!”
— Angela M. Buck | Senior Manager, Ernst & Young LLP

Diversity and inclusivity are a big part of company culture, but sometimes it's awkward, embarrassing, or even painful to talk about.
Which is why our corporate screenings are so powerful.
Let the stories in Dream, Girl do the work for you. Listen to the women in the film share how it feels to be underestimated, discriminated against, and what it’s truly like to be a woman in business today.
Then after the film, use their stories as a catalyst to open up the conversation and learn about what your company can do to be a more inclusive and inspiring place to work. We provide a digital 24-page post-screening Q&A guidebook to facilitate those conversations after the film.
Don’t feel comfortable leading the conversation? Let our director Erin Bagwell help:
"For the last five years I've been immersed in the feminist community, traveled worldwide with the film, and spoken at NASA, TIME, and Goldman Sachs. My passion, inspiration, and joy come from having these uncomfortable conversations about gender. Why? Because I was sexually harassed at the last job I worked for before Dream, Girl. I never wants anyone to feel like the work they do doesn’t matter because of who they are, and am dedicated to making the workplace more inclusive for women and people of color."
- Erin, director of Dream, Girl
