Forging ahead is nothing new for Ellen Connor. Struggling to find fights, Ellen wanted to create more opportunities for women boxers and founded West Coast Wonder Women, a three day all female boxing tournament in Sooke, British Columbia, unlike any other in the world. At first glance, it’s just a boxing event, but each fighter who steps into the ring is celebrating the belief that regardless of how many times they have been told they can’t, they can.

“All Female Card” is still in production and we believe that now more than ever the world needs to see more stories of women succeeding. These are stories of women who overcame all sorts of odds: domestic abuse, raising children as a single mother, pregnancy, growing up the daughter of an undocumented immigrant, losing a race for mayor in a major metropolitan city, and so much more. Their stories are stories of strength and immense vulnerability and have been overlooked for far too long. Some may see this as a boxing film but we see “All Female Card” as a film about one women’s journey to empower ALL women, and bring as many people as possible to support that process. That’s where you come in. Join us in highlighting women who are paving the way throughout their communities and beyond.
