'Girl Empowerment' - sounds new, doesn't it? The more commonly used term is 'Woman Empowerment' -- but by now we should all know that anything Ellen DeGeneres is far from common. In "a collaboration between two American style icons,” according to Gap Global President, Jeff Kirwan, the clothing giant has partnered with the media icon to launch a line of wardrobe staples aiming to engage the world in meaningful dialogue, to celebrate the individuality of young girls and foster positivity and encouragement among them.
"I know from my own experience that nothing makes you feel better than being who you are and celebrating what makes you unique. I think if we shine a light on real girls doing incredible things, that’ll encourage other girls and boys to do incredible things,” says DeGeneres.
