This International Women's Day, trash the harmful gender stereotypes that hold girls back

It's time to #RewriteHerStory

From helpless romantic to the emotional drama queen, we’re tired of seeing harmful female stereotypes in the media and entertainment. They are damaging what we believe we can do, what we believe we can achieve and where we believe we belong in the world. It’s gone on too long and it needs to stop.  

This International Women's Day, help us trash gender stereotypes by telling the people with power in media and entertainment what you're sick of seeing.
