A campaign by Geometry
The World Woman Foundation, in partnership with Geometry along with WPP partners BCW, Hogarth Worldwide, and Gramercy Park Studios, has launched #ShesMyHero.
This socially powered movement aims to encourage girls around the world to find the one hero that inspires them to overcome obstacles and change their world.

With our goal to empower one million women and girls by 2030, we believe that their experiences will make a difference for the younger generation,” says Rupa Dash, CEO of World Woman Foundation, “Through the World Woman Hour, these 60 hero stories of women changing the world will continue to drive awareness on critical issues currently faced by women and girls globally.”

Beth Ann Kaminkow, Global CEO of Geometry commented, “We came together with our WPP agency partners to accelerate World Woman Foundations’ vision of ‘mentorship for all’ and be part of a bigger change. Recognizing that this year’s International Day of the Girl holds an even greater meaning, we are using our superpower of creativity to spotlight the untold stories of women from all corners of the globe to empower the next generation of change-makers to find their voice and purpose.”
Elspeth Lynn, executive creative director #ShesMyHero added, “Sometimes, we just need to be inspired by one person who is already doing what we want to do. So, our ambition is that a girl will watch World Woman Hour and say to herself, 'If she can do it, so can I.”
