The 'All About Women' Trailer Is Required Watching For Every Little Girl

'What do you want to be when you grow up?'

It's a question met with wonder and enthusiasm though if you are a little girl, one that inevitably comes with ingrained doubt.

"I don't think it's a job that women would be interested in, because I think more women would be interested in being a nurse," Brianna, 11, says to camera after being asked whether she thinks more men or women are employed as a helicopter doctor.

Brianna is one of three young girls interviewed in a short film as part of Sydney's "All About Women" festival happening in March. Each of them share their dream job; an author, helicopter doctor and marine biologist.

Though none of them can name a woman with the same job, off the top of their head.

"We tell children that they can do anything but how can we expect them to believe, what they can't see?" the film, created by Maserati in collaboration with Sydney Opera House asks.

It's a fair question. So why not show them?

Each young girl is taken to meet a woman with their dream job, to have a chat and see that their career prospects can in fact, be the same as a man's.

"There's not really a difference between boy and girl writing," Sierra, 6, explains.

"So they can both become an author," she said.

Turns out, seeing really is believing.

It's a message the annual Opera House festival has been spreading for the past four years and one the world could do more with, more than ever, right now.

'All About Women' returns on Sunday 5 March 2017 ahead of International Women's Day on 8 March.
