Girls Who Code just announced the release of the organization’s debut digital visual album, Sisterh>>d.
The new release elevates a growing movement of girls fighting for change in their communities and calling on girls around the world to join them.
“Girls Who Code has always been about more than leading the fight to close the gender gap in tech. We’re a movement, and above all: a Sisterhood.” – Girls Who Code founder and CEO Reshma Saujani
In developing the album, Girls Who Code sought input from an Advisory Council of 50 girls from around the world in addition to an advisory board of influential women in entertainment, non-profit, tech, and more.
Throughout history, and even more so in recent years, girls across the country and around the world have become the faces of transformative social movements.
But this generation of girls are some of the most diverse, open-minded, and civically engaged in our history.
Sisterh>>d explores different components of their journey—how they build together, rise together and create change together—as a sisterhood.
The album is available at girlswhocode.com/sisterhood.
The song features vocals by powerhouse hip-hop vocalist and BET Her Award nominee Lizzo, appearances by electronic music artist and activist Madame Gandhi and Seattle’s Northside Step Team. This track emphasizes the power of sisterhood to heal and empower.
“Ode” features conversations about activism between musicians, organizers, artists, and leaders that span generations and nations– including former President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards, Founder of non-profit PERIOD.org Nadya Okamoto, Grammy Award-winning Beninese singer-songwriter Angélique Kidjo, and transgender activist and Constituency Labour Party women’s officer Lily Madigan.
