Today is International Women’s Day and as s woman, and a mom of two little girls, I love to share in the powerful force that women are. I love sharing amazing women with my daughters so they have a constant reminder that they have the ability to do anything.
It’s no coincidence that Captain Marvel was released on International Women’s Day! I can’t stress enough how great this movie is and that Carol Danvers is such a wonderful role model for young girls. Take them to see this one!

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is one of my favorite collections of women from all cultures and time periods. This book started as a crowdfunding project and we jumped on board immediately. They have since published a second book and now have a podcast!
The unique narrative style of “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” transforms each biography into a fairy-tale, filling the readers with wonder and with a burning curiosity to know more about each hero.
In recognition of International Women’s Day, DreamWorks Animation has assembled the cast, crew and young fans of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to remind girls around the world they have the power to achieve anything they set their mind to.
This amazing video, features the cast of She-Ra, including Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Lauren Ash (Scorpia), Marcus Scribner (Bow), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), Merit Leighton (Frosta), Krystal Joy Brown (Netossa) and executive producer Noelle Stevenson open up about what She-Ra and its positive portrayals of women and girls means to them and the impact it has on the young audience who watches the show.
Led by Stevenson, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power features a wide variety of female characters brought to life by a diverse voice cast, with an all-female writers room, majority female crew, and a dedication to centering the stories of women in a way that both children and adults can relate to. The series is showing young audiences that no matter how they look or who they choose to be, they are worthy of love, respect, and a starring role in the stories they adore.
Literal career goals right here. I want to work with this team of women!
