About the Glamourbaby Diaries Workshop:
Glamourbaby Diaries is a writing workshop series with a focus on women’s empowerment and Asian American women’s history explored through the lens of fashion. Glamourbaby Diaries encourages young women to redefine beauty and elegance by encompassing themes of strength, passion, & purpose. Incorporating media, art, and fashion, participants gain tools that build self-confidence, inner beauty, social awareness, and leadership, inspiring them to embrace their highest potential to become agents of social change.
With a component of the program dedicated to Asian American women’s issues, participants learn about the unique struggles that Asian American women face, and find parallels across multi-cultural upbringings. The goal of this program is to create an inspiring and provocative space for young women to explore their identity and assert their voices in the public sphere. The program focuses on the leadership and personal development of female leaders, thinkers, and writers, providing participants with tools to strengthen the expression of their opinions and ideas, thus creating opportunities to better represent themselves in their families, schools, and communities. The Glamourbaby Diaries aspires to be the “gateway” in which young women connect their interests in fashion with a new found passion for social advocacy.
Launched in New York City, this project was funded by the Asian Women Giving Circle in 2010.
