A bunch of Philly kiddos made a music video celebrating ‘amazing’ women

It's to hype March 3's Girls Rally, co-organized by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and the National Youth Foundation.

Two hundred young girls will storm the City Hall courtyard on Saturday, March 3, to recognize the accomplishments of six distinguished women.

Those women — radio legend Lady B, Wells Fargo’s Tiffany Tavarez, local Little League icon Mo’Ne Davis, Women’s Way Executive Director Diane Cornman-Levy and FuturePerfect Ventures founder Jalak Jobanputra — will be joined by reps from a number of women-led nonprofits and City Councilwomen.

Called the Girls Rally, the event is co-organized by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and The National Youth Foundation, the latter of which will be announcing the winner of its “Local Heroines” writing contest for young girls from the School District of Philadelphia. The sixth honoree will be the winner of National Youth Foundation’s competition.

“We want these young girls to walk away and feel like they can do anything,” said Reynolds Brown’s communications manager, Haniyyah Sharpe-Brown.

Sharpe-Brown said the rally was inspired by recent women’s marches held in cities across the country, and wanting to do something similar that will empower young girls, specifically.
