During graduate school, what seems like a lifetime ago, I was very interested in gender roles and how they were formed. As a young feminist, I was surprised to learn that fathers have a major influence in how girls develop their self-image. Forty years later, research makes it clear how important this dynamic can be.
Three weeks ago, I received a newsletter from our customers, Southeast Psych, about a project they have undertaken. It is one I think you will find interesting and I hope you will support.
The VisionThe creators, 5 passionate women from Southeast Psych who are on the front lines of treating eating disorders, recognized a need to empower fathers who have previously been left out of the conversation.Our goal with A Voice That Carries is to create an uplifting documentary that encourages fathers to engage with their daughters and equips them to make a positive impact.The PlanThe first step in sparking a movement for positive father-daughter relationships is making this inspiring documentary. We believe that a father’s voice carries hope, strength, courage, and so much more! Our aim is to have as many people see this film as possible to enhance the lives of families for generations to come. Our film maker is Brett Culp, known best for his award-winning film Legends of the Knight.To learn more, please check out our website, AVoiceThatCarries.comHelp Make It Happen!To finish this project, we’ve launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign.Please watch the teaser to our film, which is just a snapshot of one of the many stories that will be told in the full length documentary.
