2013 Women of Vision: Penny Marshall
WIFV DC honors famed director Penny Marshall with a Women of Vision award on July 30 followed by a special screening of Marshall’s A League of Their Own at the Avalon Theatre in Washington, D. C. USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan will moderate Q & A.
On a personal note, I’ve loved Marshall ever since her eight-season turn on ABC’s Laverne & Shirley. She went on to direct seven feature films, including Awakenings, Big and The Preacher’s Wife in addition to A League of Their Own.

Fox 5 News interviews 2012 WIFV DC President, Mary May, and Beth Mendelson, Voice of America and past Women of Vision honoree.
Because of the gender bias in the European Film Award nominations, it’s especially satisfying to see Agnieszka Holland in the list of recipients of Women in Film and Video’s (WIFV) annual Women of Vision Awards, also just announced.
