If you're perusing this Kickstarter page, you've probably already seen the Lady Parts blog. For the past few months, we've been calling out sexist bullshit in casting calls for film, TV, and theater. It is our mission to relocate the punchline of these so-bad-they're-funny ads from the women they reference to the sexist nonsense they contain. We've been getting a lot of great attention from the likes of Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Jezebel, Hello Giggles, and more. We even got to collaborate on a kickass video with Upworthy, which you can watch at the bottom of this page!

But instead of just pointing out that we need better representations of women in the media we consume, Lady Parts wants to MAKE better female characters, too. We want to produce a webseries about what happens when you click through one of these heinous casting calls. A webseries about the human beings intercepting and responding to this nonsense. A webseries that is part comedy, part critique of the industry at large, and wholly devoted to making better roles for women. 

Thanks to the support of our 25K followers across Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, Lady Parts has already gotten some great exposure. But by producing original video content, we can get a whole new slew of people thinking about the problem of discrimination in casting, and what they can do to change the nature of the industry. We have a great team of actors, writers, and production gurus at the ready (Look at that! Drama school did pay off!), now all we need is some cash.

We need the donations of our followers and fans to create our webseries, but because there are so many people tuned into the project already, we don't need all that much from any single one of you! Just send us a dollar. Or five. Or ten. Whatever your experience with our blog has been worth to you. Share our Kickstarter videos, our images, our links, and tell everyone you know that "Beautiful Girl (non-speaking) isn't gonna cut it anymore.

Thank you for all of your support. Let's make a thing together!

Cheers,

Katrina Day

Founder and HBIC of Lady Parts
