”Please never let folks tell you it’s not possible. “We can’t find women to do that job.” Nonsense. We achieved full gender parity on our new show CHERISH THE DAY with a production crew of over 50% women, including 18 lady department heads. Because we tried and made it so”, she tweeted.

Ava DuVernay has achieved that with her new production for The Oprah Winfrey Production. Cherish The Day is set to premiere in 2020, it tells the story of a married couple and everyday events that unfolds in their lives.

She recently threw her weight behind the fellow female director, Genevieve Nnaji when her hit feature film, Lionheart was disqualified from The Academy based on language. The movie was submitted for the Best International Feature Film category which according to The Academy, is any film that was shot outside the United States in a local language.
