The project Girls Who Handle It is an art exhibit event where attendees will read stories & see photos of young women who are dealing with unbelievable difficulties that most people do not ever know about, and are managing these issues with remarkable resilience. 

This project is about increasing the level of public vulnerability and advocate for a community of honest sharing and acceptance amongst women, specifically in contrast to what is portrayed on their social media profiles. In doing so, Girls Who Handle It is a platform where members of the community are provided with an opportunity to confront the pervasive norms of social media by directly addressing the issues these norms mandate that we hide.
