Unique Voices, Shared Visions: Meena Nanji and GlobalGirl Media

In the U.S., women and minorities continue to be vastly underrepresented in the media. The mission of GlobalGirl Media is to put tools of the journalistic trade into the hands of young women around the world. Co-founder Meena Nanji’s work is unified by her ethical and intellectual commitments as well as her artistic vision, whether mentoring young women in journalism across the U.S. with GlobalGirl or making a documentary featuring the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, “I think my works are pieces of a larger, coherent ethical project.”
