Mary Janes: The Women of Weed - Nevada City


Women are changing the face of today’s fastest growing industry - cannabis.

Join filmmaker Windy Borman as she explores the movement to end marijuana prohibition, her own relationship to the plant, and

the stereotypes surrounding it. Through a series of empowering and educational interviews with a broad diversity of women leading the industry today, Windy’s own assumptions are transformed as she discovers cannabis liberation intersects with the most urgent social justice issues of our time. She learns how this green revolution has big effects on environmental sustainability, ending the War on Drugs and the Prison-Industrial Complex, and the destructive domination of Big Pharma.

Film Director/Producer Windy Borman explores how marijuana is the first new industry to emerge in the 21st century—and it’s led by women. By looking at the intersection of gender parity, social justice, and environmental sustainability, Borman explores how cannabis is not only an industry, but also a movement of dedicated and pioneering women she calls “Puffragettes™” (as in Pot + Suffragette).
