The Academy Award-winning actor and advocate made her first visit to Nashville this week, speaking at multiple events devoted to empowering women and girls.
On Thursday, Lipscomb University’s Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership and The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media hosted the event: “A League of Their Own,” — featuring an inspiring keynote address from Geena Davis.
“Women are seriously underrepresented in every sector of society,” the Oscar-winner pointed out before a packed audience.
Davis was particularly critical of the disproportionate number of male to female characters presented on children’s programming.
