Actress Lena Waithe, Dove and ATTN: have joined forces to present Girls Room, a new five-episode scripted series that sheds a light on female adolescence in today’s modern world. Girls Room will spotlight a group of five girls as they face the challenges of growing up in today’s social media world.
The series centerpoint is the bathroom and follows each character from the school bathroom back home to their individual bathrooms where they confront barriers to self-esteem that teen girls are facing every day, from the pressures of social media, teasing and bullying to dealing with body dissatisfaction.
In a statement Waithe shared her thoughts on the project. “Growing up can be such a discordant experience – you can spend one moment feeling like you can conquer the world and the next full of self-doubt throughout this journey to define who you are every day. Girls are facing very real issues that influence how they see themselves in the world, but what I hope comes through in Girls Room is that we have the power to lift each other up and encourage one another to feel freedom in being ourselves.”
Check out the trailer below.
