Girls Inc. Partners with Paramount Pictures for the Release of New “Mean Girls” Film
New York, NY – January 8, 2024 – Girls Inc. is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Paramount Pictures for the cinematic debut of the iconic Mean Girls film set to hit theaters on January 12, 2024.
Girls Inc. has been selected as the film’s nonprofit partner to provide educational resources that engage girls in essential conversations surrounding themes addressed in the movie via The Mean Girls Myth Discussion Guide.
“The Mean Girls movie offers valuable teachable moments on issues disproportionately impacting girls,” said Girls Inc. President & CEO, Dr. Stephanie J. Hull. “As the leading expert on girls, and with a reach that extends to over 100,000 participants, we have a staff that is well prepared to assist families, schools, and other youth-serving organizations as we engage girls in important discussions about anti-bullying, allyship, self-esteem, relationship building, and other themes central to our mission of inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold.”
The Mean Girls Myth Discussion Guide includes interactive elements with suggested questions for facilitated discussions with girls and helpful resources that build upon the Girls Inc. Bill of Rights, leadership curriculum, and social and emotional learning (SEL) resources. SEL topics include social awareness, self-awareness, self-management, and responsible decision-making.
“We’re so happy to partner with Girls Inc., an organization I’ve gotten to know over the years, for this particular event. They do so much to build positive school and community environments for girls to realize their full potential,” said Tina Fey.
In anticipation of the cinematic release, Girls Inc. participants in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago will have the opportunity to attend exclusive screenings. A special Empire State Building lighting ceremony will also take place on January 10th with the Mean Girls cast where a charitable donation will be made to Girls Inc.
