My First Time On the Radio

Today was my first day co-hosting for Feminist Magazine at KPFK! From behind the scenes to behind the mic. I was definitely nervous, but co-hosts Ariana Manov and Lynn Harris Ballen supported me 100%!

How did people around the country celebrate International Day of the Girl on October 11? We featured Alex Dionne — Production Manager for 10×10, a feature film and a social action campaign – and Annie Gersh — 9th grader at Marlborough School and Teen Advisor for the UN Foundation’s Girl Up campaign – and talked about what their work  to support girls worldwide. Annie is also the Co-Chair for the Teen Advisor board and served on Senator Gillibrand’s Off the Sidelines Youth Advisory council which helps empower girls and women to be political leaders.

Their message? Educating girls in developing nations can change the world.

THIS is what feminism sounds like!

 Update March 2013: You can screen the finished film, Girl Rising, in your community using Gathr! See how.
