Transcript for Documentary Hits Schools to Empower Next Generation of Girls
It is a girl power Monday on "Gma" and we are highlighting the latest grass roots moment happening in schools across the country, screening the film the empowerful project. Which celebrates positive women and we got to go to one of the screenings and discover the driving force behind the film. What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail? This is what an astronaut looks like. This is what a congresswoman looks like. Have you ever had a dream for me? That dream is directing a documentary. What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail? Meet the forces behind the new documentary the empowerment project. Driving across the U.S. From Los Angeles to New York in a month. The project came from feeling frustrating with the media and the way it does and does not portray woman and the TV shows and magazines. We felt like let's be at part of the solution and stop being a part of the problem. You profiled 17 strong, successful women. It was just this beautiful puzzle. Because amazing women are everywhere. I think when you hear stories of celebrities or CEOs, that's all great but we don't relate. We wanted to make girls of the next generation feel like oh, they're just like me, I can be that, too. And Sara and Dana are taking the project into schools across the country. Tell me what it's like watching them watching your film. It's a joy and privilege. Having a girl say I didn't know women could be astronauts. Now I want to be an astronaut. That's what it's all about. We joined their movement at the leadership school in Harlem. Let me introduce Sara and Dana. Asking this group of 7th graders that same question at the heart of the film. What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail? I would become an artist. I would be a doctor. I would be a teacher. I would be in textbooks and everything. I feel like the movie just gave me the final push that I needed so that I can be -- Whatever you want to be? Yeah. Awesome. This is what a lawyer looks like. This is what an executive chef looks like. This is what a future immigration lawyer looks like. This is what a future empowered woman looks like. This is what a future artist looks like. This is what a future judge of the supreme court looks like. What's the ultimate goal and dream? Living it right now. It's true. We made this film to empower the next generation of female leaders. Our goal would be to continue to film this in schools, corporations, anyone that would have us. And we have been asking you on social media this morning what would you do if you weren't awe afraid to fail? Here's some of the favorite responses. Quit my regular job and be a full time Zumba instructor. And Gail says wear a bathing Sult in public. Love my body while doing it and rock it. And my daughter played football on her high school football team. Failure is not in our vocabulary. You can learn more on our website "Good morning america".com. I highly recommend it. It is so empowering for everyone. I was watching the little girls. You got a little girl. Yeah. It's amazing what it's doing.
