Cause and Effect: Why We Need to Tell Herstory

We are proud to release the below infographic and video, created in collaboration with the lovely folks at (music courtesy of Metric), in honor of International Women’s Day.

While the chips are clearly stacked against today’s young girls, amazing women everywhere continue to rise above the stats. You or someone you know is probably one of them.

This March we are collecting these stories of everyday women who have overcome the odds – the stereotypes and misrepresentations – in order to reach their goals. Inspired ourselves by the voice of Sandra Fluke and the growing strength of the women’s rights movement, through your successes we hope to motivate new generations of girls to reach for their dreams. Send us your stories!
