Why They Gotta Do Me Like That?

"Why They Gotta Do Me Like That? The Empowered Fe Fes Take On Bullying" was produced in a workshop with the junior group of the Empowered Fe Fes. In this film, 13 young women with disabilities explore school-based bullying by interviewing people on why bullying happens and how they respond, then acting out common experiences with new solutions. The Empowered Fe Fes demand viewers to consider bullying as a serious issue of discrimination, letting us know that we can work together to both understand the stop the problem. 

A Girls! Action! Media! Project

Girls! Action! Media! workshops create a safe space for young women to talk about issues of concern and develop as community activists while learning important media, arts and technology skills.

We partner with programs for under-served girls and young women, equipping them to use technology and media creatively to examine and ultimately transform their lives and their communities.
