KETCHUM, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Female leaders in Idaho were recognized Sunday in Sun Valley.
They also got to meet an academy award winning actress.

Geena Davis was the keynote speaker at the Sun Valley Film Festival's Grande Dame Brunch and Women’s Leadership Celebration.

The brunch honored eight Idaho women for their leadership in a variety of films. Davis discussed her Institute on Gender in the Media.

She talked a lot about lower representation of women in movies and T.V. shows. Especially programs geared toward children.

"I feel strongly that this is one of the most important things that we can do in the world to try to elevate women is to improve their on–screen representation," Davis said.

Among the eight women honored were two Southern Idaho women.
Aimee Christensen from Sun Valley and Tracy Hills from Jerome received an award.
