GIRLS RISING IS:
A nonprofit formed by the all female rock band, Antigone Rising, to inspire young girls and LGBT youth to pursue non-traditional career paths and educate all kids that it's ok to play, think, act, and BE DIFFERENT 

WHAT WE DO:
Antigone Rising partners with school districts and youth centers, including LGBT youth centers, to create innovative programming that inspires kids through live performances, presentations and workshops.
Learn more about what we do right here! 
WHY WE DO IT:
The main stream media does not provide enough worthy female role models. Our Girls Rising program provides kids the opportunity to see women excel in a male dominated profession and offers them strong female and LGBT role models to emulate.
