I'm excited to pass the inspiration along to the next generation of women storytellers making waves.”-Sujata Day, Filmmaker/Star of Definition Please

“The "Women Making Waves" award seeks to recognize women in the film and television industry whose productions shift and challenge our stereotypical perceptions of women in real life. The recipient of this award creates or portrays characters who authentically represent women as whole human beings, experiencing the full range of life’s complexities and experiences. Sujata’s work does all of this and more. We want to thank her for shattering our television screens, paving the way for others to follow in her footsteps, to the benefit of us all.” - Heidi Basch-Harod, Executive Director, Women’s Voices Now
