WHO WE ARE:
Girls Rising is a recognized 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by the all-female rock group Antigone Rising that aims to inspire and empower girls and women to follow their dreams and passions to reach their true potential.
WHAT WE DO:
Through engaging conversation about our own experiences as women in the music industry, performance and the power of example, our outreach programs entertain, educate, encourage and inspire young women to go beyond the boundaries society places on gender and become Game Changers.
WHY WE DO IT:
Girls and women need to see strong, thriving women succeeding in non-traditional roles. The mainstream media is failing at providing enough adequate examples and visibility of these inspiring women role models. Our outreaches demonstrate to girls (and boys) that strong women exist and have much to contribute to art, culture, sports, finance, business and the world around them.
