I created this site because I've been researching girls' media production for over a decade now, and wanted to pull together in one place information on girl media producers, as well as programs for and research about girls' media-making.

If you'd like me to link to your work or program, please email me. This project will grow and be useful only through the help of good people like yourself. I'm especially interested in adding information on programs and research from outside the U.S. Thanks!

Memory tricks!

Memory Tricks!  -- Eight 5th grade students from the Jemicy School in Owings Mills, MD, which educates students with dyslexia or other related language-based learning differences, have teamed up with eight young women studying animation at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore. Working in student-mentor pairs, the Jemicy and MICA students are animating visualized mnemonic devices that kids can use to facilitate learning and make it fun.

Project director Lynn Tomlinson, an animator and MICA professor, is known for her work on Sesame Street and PBS Kids, and designed this project to empower girls through art and technology.
