GIRLS JUST WANNA GRIND – The Untold Story of 5 Girl Skaters fighting for their place in an industry that does not support them. All they need to make it now is your help. Volunteer, donate, make this film happen
From the people behind this project:
GIRLS JUST WANNA GRIND
“They’re not blonde, sexy, California babes. They’re hanging out with boys and dressing like boys. They’re not generally pinup models. They’ve got bruises on their knees and scratches on their shins.” according to Circe Wallace, that’s how the industry erroneously perceives girl skaters. Wallace, a passionate advocate for female athletes, snowboarding pioneer and sports agent, is frustrated by this perception and would like to see it changed.
So do we! Not only are these girls are beautiful… but more importantly, so what? Why does pretty matter? Does anyone think, “hey, that guy sure can sink a lot of baskets, but he’s not very good looking.” We have to stop giving girls the message it’s not what you do, it’s how you look doing it. And that is exactly why we decided to film the documentary Girls Just Wanna Grind.
This is a story of love, adventure, friendship, sacrifice, competition, family, injuries, and well, some pretty wicked skateboarding too. In a time when girls get famous by being bad, these girls are struggling to be good. Help us get their story to the world.
All the details on how you can help are here.
