I first came across Inês’ wonderful work two years ago, while researching girl empowerment communities for my documentary project The Illusionists (for which Inês eventually became an ally, supporter and sponsor).
I was instantly captivated by Inês’ vision, drive, determination, and altruism. Her enterprise 7 Wonderlicious is focused on overturning gender stereotypes, empowering girls to achieve their full potential: the site contains a multitude of resources for girls and parents alike and is constantly updated with inspiring blog posts.
Inês’ latest initiative is “A Chain of Girl Goodness“: she aims to create a values- driven online marketplace – similar to Etsy.com – focused on empowering products for girls. In order to create a prototype for this online platform, Inês is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Help make it happen here: www.indiegogo.com/GirlPower.
