The Heroic Girls Foundation is a pop culture-based nonprofit that advocates for better representation of women and girls in movies, television, books, comics and other mass media in order to combat harmful gender norms that hold women and girls back in the real world.
The Heroic Girls Foundation seeks to change how we think about gender by changing the media we consume.
We envision a world where women are represented on the screen and page in proportion to their representation in the population at large. In short, we want women and girls to have half: Half the roles in hollywood blockbusters; half the protagonists in children’s literature; half the screenwriting and directing gigs; and half the spoken lines on television.
The Heroic Girls Foundation’s core values are our guiding principles that inform and guide our work with every constituency, policymaker and student we interact with. Our core values include:
- Equality between men and women, girls and boys
- Diversity in all aspects: racial, ethnic, gender and LGBTQ+
- Justice for all.
