Our mission: To provide a global platform that advances and informs public discussion about issues and topics of interest to women and adolescent girls through journalism and storytelling
Ginanne and Kristin have been friends for almost 30 years, having grown up in the summers together in northern Michigan. They wanted to start she-files.com because of a mutual love of writing, and sharing inspiring and thought-provoking stories about women.
