CalGalsMedia explores the dynamic and diverse voices and visions of women in California and throughout the world. Each story, work of art, article, and video highlights the brightness, beauty, strength of women and girls and their capacity to know what is best for themselves, their families, and communities. Though our focus is on women and girls, we also celebrate and share the stories of men, boys, and non-binary people who elevate the wellbeing of all people.
