Beyond Disability

The Empowered Fe Fes (slang for female), a group of young women with disabilities, hit the streets of Chicago on a quest to discover the difference between how they see themselves and how others see them. Their revelations are humorous, thought provoking and surprising. As the young women grapple with issues as diverse as access, education, employment, sexuality and growing up with disabilities, they address their audience with a sense of urgency, as if to say, "I need to tell you so you'll see me differently."

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.
