2015 has been an incredible year for women. One American toy company has created an empowering video to celebrate some of the amazing feminist role models of the year that all girls, big and little, need to see.
Ten awesome women. Ten different roles. And ten future little superstars in the making. This is the foundation of the Fast-Forward Girls video, produced by GoldieBlox, a company that makes toys, games and media designed to give girls confidence in themselves.
The video, set to Fith Harmony’s Worth It and featuring the voice of adorable English sweetheart, Sophia Grace, showcases ten of the most influential women of 2015 in sport, entertainment, and politics. These include Emmy winner Viola Davis, politician Hilary Clinton, comedian Amy Schumer, Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, soccer star Abby Wambach, engineer Isis Anchalee, NFL coach Jen Welter and principal ballerina Misty Copeland.
According to the YouTube description, the purpose of the video is to celebrate “today’s role models and the generation of girls they’ve inspired – the girls who have broken the mould, blazed a trail, and made it happen. In 2015, these ten women in politics, entertainment, sport, and STEM are the leading ladies that we all hope to grow up to be, proving that anything – and we mean anything – is possible.”
The girl power is overwhelming to say the least and the ten girls who dress up as the leading ladies are absolutely sensational. We expect to see a lot more of all of them in 2016.
