Sara Hirsh Bordo

Episode 3, Rising Above Darkness

Sometimes, one must survive a break down to truly breakthrough. When her female mentor and hero told her that she belonged where she wore an apron and not in an office, something erupted inside of filmmaker and producer Sara Hirsh Bordo. She wasn’t destroyed—instead, a passion was born.

A Sonic Journey

Born on that day was Women Rising, a production company and content studio that is focused on the empowerment of women and girls. Producer and filmmaker Sara Hirsh Bordo founded the company fueled by her desire to highlight the experiences of women and girls and promote ways to bring them together and lift them up.
Good things, really good things, can emerge from a dark moment.

Former Executive Director of Interactive Marketing at Paramount Pictures, VP of Digital Marketing at MGM Studios, and CEO and Co-founder of NowLive, Bordo was prepared and poised to launch the first female-founded collaborative entertainment and strategy studio. Women Rising has produced everything from TedTalks and women’s marches to documentary films. Her films highlight critical issues and support organizations that provide assistance to people suffering as a result of these issues or events. Topics cover a broad range from changing the social culture of relationship violence against women to the children of 9/11 and how they are surviving that trauma through grace and community.

Says Bordo, “Some curse the darkness, others light a candle.” She adds, “We go higher.”
