- Because arts programs in schools are constantly in danger of being defunded across the United States.
- Because theater education and media literacy have an empirical, positive influence on students’ achievement, self-esteem, and critical thinking.
- Because, while there are many arts programs for kids and for girls across the country, there are few that use theater, media, and storytelling as a way to not only empower individuals but also as a tool for building community and bringing about social change.
- Because people still don’t listen to, trust, or believe women when they speak.
- Because women and girls are still underrepresented on screen.
- Because we not only want girls to have confidence and ability in telling their own stories through theater and media, we also want them to be able to:
— listen to and believe stories of those with different experiences from their own
— tell the stories of their communities
— mentor others
- Because we want girls to understand that narratives have the power to shape society for better or for worse.
- Because we want more girls wielding that power to change society for the better.
