Why You Should Listen To The Hidden World Of Girls
If you, like us, love stories about inspiring, empowered women, The Hidden World of Girls series is a must-listen. The brainchild of the brilliant duo The Kitchen Sisters, The Hidden World of Girls offers an intimate peek inside the lives of pioneering women, sharing “stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities—of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide.”
Each episode provides a rich narrative about a woman (or women) who has made an impact—and continues to aspire to something great. Although we could easily sit down and listen to the entire series in one fell swoop, we recommend starting with two hour-long specials.
Hosted by the inimitable Tina Fey, both shows introduce listeners to women around the globe—all of whom have a rich, inspiring background. During the first episode, for example, you’ll embark on a journey that spans the dance halls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah. You’ll visit a Russian roadside and a Manhattan slumber party, traveling from the middle of the city to the middle of nowhere—and along the way, you’ll meet extraordinary women who, although they come from different countries and backgrounds, all have one thing in common: an amazing story.
It’s hard to top these fascinating narratives, but one of the things we love most about The Hidden World of Girls is that you—yes, you—can get involved in the show. The Kitchen Sisters are on the look out for “tales of the extraordinary and everyday, from the past to the present.” If you’d like to share your story, call the message line at 202.408.9576. Or share images and videos that depict women who have changed their lives and the world around them.
Keep these words from The Kitchen Sisters in mind: “We’re looking for stories about the women who are leading the meetings and the girls who are breaking new ground: the famous, the infamous, the unknown and the unsung.”
Your story deserves to be heard. And we hope you’ll consider giving your narrative a voice. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the rest of the series. After all, you can never have too much inspiration in your life, right?
We’d love to hear what you think of The Hidden World of Girls. Feel free to stop back by and let us know what you thought of the series. And if there’s a woman in your life who has done something to change her life or blaze a trail, we’d love to hear about her.
