Q. What was the inspiration for Our Stories?

A. Our Stories was inspired by a desire for more diverse, nuanced and meaningful representations of young people, people of color, and girls and femmes in our media and pop culture. What would it mean, and look like, if we centered girls and gender non-conforming youth of color, and supported them as storytellers who are architects of their own lives?

We know the power of pop culture to change culture, and with this project — the most ambitious media initiative of its kind — we aim to change the way America sees, hears and imagines a generation of girls.
