The Press Release.
Women in Horror entertainment has created quite a memorable presence and continues to be a rising trend. Coming from the restricted days of the role of the woman being the victim and the damsel in distress in cinema, to now the woman holding more prominent roles, such as Director, Writer, Producer. Also, the roles in cinema have changed to roles that had an imprint identity of masculinity for decades. Such as strong protagonists and antagonists.
It’s always nice to give to charity. Street Teens is an organization that helps teens get off of the streets. With the youth today at a greater risk of street life than ever, programs such as this step in and create a safe haven where youth can spend their free time rather than the unfavorable option.
