Feminist Live Reads is a regular staged live reading series created by writer/director Chandler Levack in Toronto in 2015. It aims to raise awareness of the disparity of roles available for women in film and television and to promote diversity in the entertainment industry. The series casts a strong ensemble of female actresses in amazing, complex roles from iconic film and television scripts, regardless of gender, to be performed live in front of an audience. All proceeds go to a charity to benefit women in our community. Past performers have included Mia Kirshner, Sook-Yin Lee, Kayla Lorette, Deragh Campbell, Lauren Collins, Nadia Litz and Katie Boland.
