About The Event

A demonstration that a girl's worth does not lie within how she looks and what she wears, but who she is and what she can do! Girls today grow up feeling forced to conform to ideals of artificial beauty. From pageants and magazines to TV shows and celebrities, girls are bombarded with images of airbrushed and altered bodies. Real beauty lies beneath all of these disguises. Come see what we can do this V-Day! Be Heard, Be Seen, Be Inspired.

About The Organization

Girl Be Heard

Girl Be Heard uses theater as a vehicle to empower young women to become brave, confident, socially conscious leaders while exploring their own challenging circumstances. Girl Be Heard is a not-for-profit theater collective and educational program. Our curriculum develops and strengthens girls' voices. We provide a safe environment to girls to write, direct, and perform theater productions under the guidance of professional directors, playwrights, actors, activists, and intellectuals. Girl Be Heard workshops develop and strengthen girls' voices. Our school and community-based programs engage company members - young women age 12-21 - through a series of writing prompts, readings, theatre exercises and discussions.

"If a girl can change her own life, she can change the lives of girls everywhere."
