This film is being created solely out of a passion to educate women and men about the importance of knowing our whole history and as a tribute to Dr. Gerda Lerner’s work in advancing culture.Thanks to seed donations, it was possible to begin shooting Why Women Need to Climb Mountains and later on through two crowdfunding campaigns and funds from institutions, it was possible to have the film edited and produced. We are now raising funds to distribute the film. All contributions are a tremendous help in bringing this very important story to life. Thank you for your support.
