WIFT member Kathleen Winter is currently looking for participants for a film project called 'Minimum'.
Minimum is a feature-length film project, which will follow a day in the life of a range of different women working minimum wage and under-appreciated jobs in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The first step is to gather stories from as many women as possible about their experiences working in these positions. Stories can be submitted anonymously through an online form: http://tinyurl.com/minimumform .
This page also links to the project's website which gives more information about who, why and how. tinyurl.com
Kathleen hopes that documenting these experiences will raise awareness around low-wage working conditions, and that it will be a step toward improving working lives for women.
Minimum is an inquiry into the lives of women who work jobs that are under-paid and under-valued. This is a call for you to share your story. Your story can revolve around your day-to-day treatment at work, on one-off events or on ongoing realities of living on a low wage. There is no minimum or maximum length. This form can be used to submit your story in text form. Some contributors will be invited to tell their story in an on-camera interview. You can choose to submit your story anonymously. No personal information, or your story, will be shared without your express permission. To find out more about the project, go to MinimumFilm.tumblr.com
