What Is It? Unplugged is taking on the coming of age story for girls like no one has before. A comedic web series, the first season will focus on the story of a young girl from her pre-teen, pre-pubescent years and follow her as she grows up and survives high school sex ed classes, her first direct experience with sexual harassment in college and up until her middle-aged adult life.
Created by Casey Hartnett, she hopes that her project will show the world what it really means to be a girl growing up in the world today. She aims to deliver a no filter story on periods, sex, harassment, gender and more. The campaign page says it best, "This is why we're here. This is why we are producing Unplugged. It's time women's stories to become part of everyday conversation across all demographics." The impact of this series goes much deeper. By supporting this series, you area also supporting women who cannot afford to buy their own menstrual products each month.
