During the 2019 IWF World Leadership Conference in Toronto, we welcomed three hilarious women for a plenary session about women in comedy. Allana Harkin, Tumi Morake and Saskia Schuster discussed their journeys and insight on today’s entertainment industry.

To expand on this important conversation, we wanted to hear from an IWF member who has experience in the worlds of comedy and entertainment. IWF Idaho member Peggy Elliott Goldwyn began her career writing, directing and producing documentaries for syndicated television. She wrote television comedies for many years, including "That Girl," "The Odd Couple" and "Happy Days," as well as television movies and motion pictures. Today, she’s a novelist, activist and fierce woman’s advocate.

Below, Peggy describes what it was like being the only woman in the writer’s room at 23 years old, how social media is changing access to new audiences, and the trick to making comedy approachable today.
