Meet the Team Behind Girls That Create
Girls That Create (GTC) strongly believes that the arts set culture. Although women currently comprise half of the U.S. population, women are underrepresented behind the scenes creating the media we all consume. To address gender imbalances, women must have a seat at decision-making tables as creators and leaders.
For this to happen, GTC is going back to the beginning—childhood, and adolescence. Girls interested in the arts and humanities must have support during their younger years, much like their sister counterparts who love STEM.
GTC nourishes future creators through digital content on parenting, women creators, creative resources, and empowering environments while also encouraging greater female representation. The platform is an ally to all marginalized groups across the arts.
Meet the Founder
Erin Prather Stafford, Editor | Writer
As the mother of two young girls and holder of a Master’s degree in gender and international development, Erin Prather Stafford is acutely aware that fixing gender imbalances in the media is key to changing gender disparity everywhere. That’s why she launched Girls That Create in 2019, which supports the parents and caregivers of creative girls.
Erin is also the Executive Producer of the award-winning documentary WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES, which traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. The film also examines the portrayal of powerful women in mass media and why representation matters.
WONDER WOMEN! had its national broadcast on Independent Lens | PBS and was chosen for Women and Girls Lead, a multi-year public media initiative to focus, educate, and connect citizens worldwide to support women and girls. Among her writing awards, Erin is a recipient of the Barbara Jordan media award.
