Bauer Media has announced its latest initiative in female-driven storytelling, with the launch of its new digital destination Women to Love.

Women to Love is a cross-brand content initiative spanning the Bauer women’s digital network, including Now to Love, sharing relevant and inspiring stories of women in the arts across Australia.

Women to Love celebrates women who are making a difference, leading their field and driving conversation around women’s roles in the arts and media industries. Longer-form storytelling sees interviews with personalities like NOW founder Tracey Spicer (main photo), filmmakers Genevieve Clay-Smith and Lynette Wallworth, illustrator Kerrie Hess and writer and actress Michelle Law.

Bauer Media’s purpose driven Female Futures initiative is leading the charge on the important conversations around the women’s agenda. Women to Love’s launch is in response to key insights around women’s presence within senior creative arts positions.

Statistics show that despite women accounting for 52 per cent of filmgoers, of the top 100 films of 2016, just four per cent of directors were female and in 2015, women made up just 19 per cent of the workforce on top grossing films – the same figure as 2001.

Women to Love comes at a cataclysmic time in the media landscape. The female voice has never been so prevalent in mainstream media,” says Lorna Gray, managing editor, digital features. “Women to Love is an essential element of Bauer’s overarching Female Futures strategy, delivering an engaging, focused and unique editorial platform in which we can continue to share the type of female-focused storytelling the likes of Story54 has done so successfully.”

The platform is edited by Digital Features Editor Mahalia Chang and Lorna Gray, managing editor, digital features, and will play an important role in contributing to Bauer’s corporate promise, announced in February, to deliver 10 Million Words across its brands by 2019.

Featured creative Kerrie Hess said, “I’m thrilled to be part of ‘Women to Love’. It’s great to see all kinds of women in the arts celebrated on the platform. Supporting each other is the best way we can all move forward together.”
