Balance must be restored!
DreamWorks She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
Celebrates International Women’s Day
If you know me you already know that I was a BOYMOM for SIXTEEN years before Emm came along! Honestly, having a daughter changed how I looked at the world and how I raised her. Having a daughter made me a better woman, a better mother. It gave me a vision of life through a little girl’s eyes. I promised myself she would have the same confidence and opportunities that my sons were presented with being boys. In recognition of International Women’s Day, DreamWorks Animation has assembled the cast, crew and young fans of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to remind girls around the world they have the power to achieve anything they set their mind to. In a newly released video, the cast of She-Ra, including Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Lauren Ash (Scorpia), Marcus Scribner (Bow), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), Merit Leighton (Frosta), Krystal Joy Brown (Netossa) and executive producer Noelle Stevenson open up about what She-Ra and its positive portrayals of women and girls means to them and the impact it has on the young audience who watches the show.
Led by Stevenson, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power features a wide variety of female characters brought to life by a diverse voice cast, with an all-female writers room, majority female crew, and a dedication to centering the stories of women in a way that both children and adults can relate to. The series is showing young audiences that no matter how they look or who they choose to be, they are worthy of love, respect, and a starring role in the stories they adore. Join She-Ra in fighting the good fight – and forge a #BalanceforBetter in the world.
DreamWorks Animation has also created resources and activity sheets for parents, teachers and caregivers to utilize in reinforcing the important messages that International Women’s Day aims to spread:
- She-Ra IWD Video Discussion Guide – stimulate important discussion with children
- My Hero Book – find your inner balanced hero
- Balance for Better Labyrinth Game – call upon the strengths and skills of others
- Heroic Support Pyramid Game – strive for greater balance in our world
