NO INTERVIEWER. NO JOURNALIST. JUST TWO LEGENDS.
‘The Power of Women’ is a New Powerful Sky Series which Airs August 2019. We have brought together 30 of the world’s most philanthropic, markedly intelligent, and extraordinary women from a selection of industries including the world of entertainment, sports, politics, and humanitarianism.
Each episode has between 2 to 4 women paired up in casual and honest conversation over drinks. The viewer has fly on the wall access to a revealing and intimate setting through a cinematic experience.
POW discusses concepts such as ageism, sexism, human rights, sustainability, mental health, animal rights, politics, spirituality, survival in a male dominated industry, glass ceiling, fashion, TV, film, music, and female empowerment.
Our media has been flooded with stories of abuse and harassment which have been bravely shared by box office stars and domestic workers alike, which has led to the drowning of some of the most powerful men who have shaped our very culture.
We as creative women producers and the team behind the critically acclaimed Sky series, ‘Living the Life’, are providing a voice for our contributors through our video and social media platforms.
Our series allows us all to reflect on the diverse mix of female experiences, and gives us a chance to rewrite the world as we see it.
The Power of Women Productions will be donating a part of our proceeds from the series to support the organisations that our Queens are involved in.
Enjoy the series and we look forward to hearing from you with your own personal experiences.

For every one of us who succeeds it’s because there is somebody there to show you the way out!
This light doesn’t always have to be your family, it can start with a special mentor in the POW, someone who believes in you.
In each episode of POW we will have a potential sponsor or mentor joining us in a refreshingly open discussion and offer career opportunities to those who wish to fulfill their dream jobs or businesses.
The viewer will be privy to a fly on the wall style conversation with no-holds-barred on the challenges faced by talented women with different backgrounds, who find themselves stalled getting into a career of their dreams or not been recognised or rewarded fully for their abilities in their current job role.
Topics will cover gender equality, discrimination, racism, harassment in the workplace, single parenting, politics and much more.
POW have put in a strategic targeted search for our ‘would be sponsors /mentors’ many of who have been contributors in “The Power Of Women Series”.
These women may exercise authority in a way that our chosen hopeful protégés would not care to copy; but it’s their clout, not their style, that will turbocharge the mentee’s careers.
Their powerful arsenal includes the high-level contacts they can introduce them to and the stretch assignments that will help them advance.
The broad perspective and critical feedback that will be given on the approach and attitude of our protégés towards achieving their goals will at times be quite shocking to viewers.
A new dawn for women where life changes will take place. The purpose of the series is to motivate others to search and find the right mentor for them, they just have to believe they can do it, and earn the success they deserve.
We will follow the progress of these women online and interact with others needing that motivation!
