Premiere Film Screening and Special Events planned for March 8, 2019
OAKLAND, Calif. – February 15, 2019 /Canna Newswire/ – There’s no doubt that this is the year of the woman. Through marches, political, and social media campaigns, and formidable grassroots organizing, people across the globe are galvanizing for a future that is gender equal. And It’s no different in the cannabis industry. Many of the key players in this green economy are women from diverse backgrounds who are closing the gender gap in business and shaping the industry playing field.
In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8th) and Women’s Month (March), Tali Eisenberg and Geter Done Productions, LLC presents the Bay Area premiere screening in Oakland of Windy Borman’s award-winning film, Mary Janes: The Women of Weed followed by a Cannabis Marketplace and Community Social showcasing female owned and led companies + brand allies.
The event will feature the 80-minute documentary film screening with local guest appearances, an educational marketplace and community social mixer showcasing female entrepreneurship and leadership in our local cannabis space. Attendees will have a chance to meet social justice organizations and learn more about a variety of cannabis brands by local cannabis makers.
Featured speakers at the event include activist and actress Beata Poźniak who campaigned to get the US Government to recognize International Women’s Day and introduced the first bill in the history of the U.S. Congress for national recognition of the holiday designating March 8 as International Women’s Day.
Says organizer Tali Eisenberg, “Gathering a group of likeminded ‘Puffragettes’ together to celebrate the female pioneers and leaders growing this pioneering industry is of landmark importance. This has not been easy, yet, our community is strong, brilliant, and full of allies and supporters. Joining community and business to share in each other’s accomplishments and ideas is changing the face of business as we know it. We felt International Women’s Day was the perfect time to launch this event.”
The cannabis educational marketplace will highlight local women pioneers, cannabis brands, organizations, and brand allies in a beautiful indoor/outdoor community setting. Enjoy CBD mocktails, non-medicated small bites, and leave with a goodie bag of products from the local makers and inspiration for the future.

About Women of Weed
Join filmmaker Windy Borman as she explores the movement to end cannabis 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.
