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!

Spotlighting: HER Ideas in Motion

HER Ideas in Motion is a Cleveland-based non-profit focused on providing mentorship to girls in non-traditional careers of technology and media arts. In addition, HER Ideas in Motion has developed a women-led approach that combines female technical and creative professionals teaching and mentoring girls to provide access to female role models in these fields. Through hands-on workshops, girls learn technical and creative skills from mentors, while gaining leadership skills to build their own projects. By providing access to female role models and teaching girls, HER Ideas in Motion aims to close the gender gap of the less than ¼ percent ratio of women to men working in these fields.

October 11 - International Day of the Girl Child

What are you doing to honor girls and to make the world a more girl-friendly place?

On December 19, 2011, United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

Girls face discrimination and violence every day across the world. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.
