Tiffany Shlain's latest film is called "50/50" because it shares the story of what the world used to look like and can look with true equality.She has been nominated for an Emmy for her filmmaking, she's founder of the Webby Awards and Newsweek called her one of the women shaping the 21st century. The film is part of Refinery 29's Shatterbox Anthology film series which explores the dynamics of women and power.
