Women and Girls Lead

Women and Girls Lead is a multi-year, nation-wide innovative public media initiative designed to focus, educate and connect women, girls, and their allies across the globe to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Women and girls everywhere are stepping into leadership roles: working to improve their communities: and innovating in science, the arts, business and governance. Women and Girls Lead is a strategic media initiative to support and sustain a growing movement to empower them, their communities, and future generations. Yet there is still much to do to deliver on the promise of equal access, freedom and opportunity for women and girls worldwide.

WGVU can help move the dial on pressing issues and expand audiences with content that matters to women, their families and local communities. WGVU will air over 40 documentaries including WOMEN-WAR AND PEACE, HALF THE SKY and KIND HEARTED WOMAN all designed for this initiative and each documentary will contribute to a multi-year engagement strategy to connect and sustain audiences across multiple platforms.

The National Women and Girls Lead Advisory Board brings together an extraordinary collection of leaders from the intersection of media, business, public affairs, academia and Hollywood. Advisory board members will help incubate and support strategies and activities throughout the campaign. A few of the national advisory board members are Geena Davis, Actor; Abigail Disney, Filmmaker; America Ferrera, Actor; Eileen Fisher, Fashion Designer; Her Majesty Queen Noor, King Hussein Foundation International; Amartya Sen., Economics Professor, Harvard University.
