Cause and Effect: Why We Need to Tell Herstory

We are proud to release the below infographic and video, created in collaboration with the lovely folks at (music courtesy of Metric), in honor of International Women’s Day.

While the chips are clearly stacked against today’s young girls, amazing women everywhere continue to rise above the stats. You or someone you know is probably one of them.

This March we are collecting these stories of everyday women who have overcome the odds – the stereotypes and misrepresentations – in order to reach their goals. Inspired ourselves by the voice of Sandra Fluke and the growing strength of the women’s rights movement, through your successes we hope to motivate new generations of girls to reach for their dreams. Send us your stories!

    It’s a very nice infographic (I’m sure it did take a long time to produce!)

    Looking at these figures it’s pretty obvious the media/advertisers have been successful. 600% increase in breast augmentation with girls under 18 years old? I wonder where they got the idea that they needed to have big breasts?? Why have we allowed this to happen to our future?

  5. Jill says:

    I saw the Youtube video because a friend posted it on Facebook. I loved the message. The only thing is the tips at the end left the screen before I got to fully read them. I had to pause it & rewind the video a few times to catch it all. Also, I had to view in full screen when those tips came on because the print in that part became too small when viewing in the approximately 3″ by 3″ video clip on Facebook.

  6. Andrew E. says:

    Usually when infographics are hosted that have such good information, they want to post the studies/research and evidence that they used. I would really appreciate a list used for this, so that I can whole-heartedly and whole-mindedly support the argument when in dialogue with others who may be skeptical.

    I’ll never figure out how the whole concept of “girly” and “manly” cars came about. Manly men don’t care about whether others think something is girly or whether somebody thinks a pair of jeans makes their butt look big. To men, life is not a fashion show. Walk like a man, talk like a man, and set your own course based on what is in your head and heart, not what you think is in somebody’s head or heart. That is manly.
