“Our Sesame programs put girls’ empowerment center stage. Our strong female characters are powerful role models for young girls the world over.”
—Sherrie Westin, Sesame Workshop VP of Global Impact 
“Around the world, local versions of Sesame Street are designed to counter negative attitudes and the gender gaps that stem from girls’ limited educational experiences. Our co-productions promote literacy and basic skills that are critical to both girls and boys. But, perhaps even more importantly, they do so in a context that values women and girls and their contributions to society.
How do we do that? Through inspiring role models and the right support from both the males and females in a girl’s life.
On Sesame Street, girls are engaged in pursuits that are fun and interesting. They take pride in their accomplishments, and are confident that they are valued. They are always ready to learn, and know that, with work, they can attain any profession.
