Bounce Theatre was delighted to launch The Female Voice Magazine on International Day of the Girl.
The magazine, born out of a lockdown podcast of the same name, was written by and with girls for girls. Featuring articles on healthy relationships, female leadership, getting into politics and much more – it’s aim was to challenge how girls are represented in the media.
The project engaged 12 young people in podcasting and writing and the magazine reached 320 people in less than three days.
Here are some of the things that people said:

“This was the coolest thing to do, and really made me think about how to articulate how grateful I am to all the women in my life. Thanks to @madewithstring and @bouncetheatre for a really fun few questions!”
