Actress Amy Poehler’s ‘Smart Girls at the Party’ digital series with ON Networks aims to empower young women. The show celebrates those who are “changing the world by being themselves,” many of whom have developed skills in the subjects of writing, yoga, cooking, dance and more.
Google’s 100 Channel YouTube initiative will breathe new life into the project which first began in 2008. The short clips, often under five minutes, touch upon the topis of feminism, sisterly bonds and music, bringing up points that are relevant to the lives of these talented girls.
Poehler’s profiles will undoubtedly help to bring about a new generation of students and activists. The interviews are especially inspiring for girls who may find themselves in compromising positions, unable to express themselves or their deepest interests.
