Launched on International Women’s Day and screening across Asia, the series shows what happens when girls discover their own power. Nexus Studios and Mighty Nice directors – Bonnie Forsyth, Claudia Chinyere Akole, Hannah Lau-Walker, Neeraja Raj, Prasanti Aswani and Siqi Song – created the animation, bringing these important stories to life.

She Creates Change is backed by a women-led creative team with executive producers Dr. Geetha Murali, Brenda Chapman (Brave), Jill Culton (Abominable), Freida Pinto (Mr. Malcom’s List) and BAFTA and Emmy-winning entertainment studio Nexus Studios.

The young women featured in She Creates Change — Dewmini, Diksha, Keya, Naifat, Trang and Yashika — are true heroes and their stories can inspire more girls to discover their own power.
