Brownies Troop 44466 Challenges You!

Brownie Troop 44466 approached Reel Grrls after the 2016 Election, extremely disappointed with the outcome - they wanted to see their first female president, but instead they saw a bully take the highest position of power in the USA.   Last fall Brownie Troop 44466 reached out to let us know that Grrl Power is important. These fierce young leaders ages 7 and 8 years old refused to be helpless, and decided that they wanted to invest in the Future is Feminist by supporting Reel Grrls through hosting a fundraiser for Grrl Power! As part of the experience we invited them to take a workshop on making mobile videos, and interviewing each ...

Reel Grrls isn’t Letting Misogyny Ruin our 15th Birthday – Let’s Bash Back Together!

Today I imagined waking up in an America where I could proudly say we put a qualified, compassionate, and experienced President in office – who also happened to be a woman.  Instead, I have no feelings, or maybe I am in shock that an unqualified and tempermental unfit man, who was endorsed by the KKK and openly bragged about sexually assaulting women, is the leader of our country, a country he doesn’t believe is great.  America we are in trouble and we are hurting. It is my belief that the only way through is creating, fighting, and advocating for a global vision of a Future that is Feminist. Last night millions of Americans said yes to ...
