GRLSWIRL is a grassroots, all-female skate community focused on uniting women through skateboarding, empowering them to break gender boundaries, and inspiring them to start a revolution by harnessing inclusivity and friendship.
“Ultimately we want to revolutionize the world and bring women together.”–MONROE
On finding community:
“I am a fairly new skater who definitely doesn’t fit the typical skateboarder mold. I was a pro ballerina terrified to get on a board, but was taught correctly and fell in love with how liberating and empowering skating feels. I was skating every day, and very quickly I realized the unwanted attention I would attract being a feminine woman skating alone. I started recruiting other women to join me in the hope of finding comfort in numbers. Suddenly we were a force, not a minority, and we all felt it was revolutionary.” - LUCY
“Through divine timing, support from the community, and so much love, our grassroots movement started.” - MYRIAH
On what’s next for GRLSWIRL:
“If we can spread this empowerment, women around the globe who have been oppressed and told to sit down and be pretty, suddenly are understanding their power and able to stand up for what they believe in and unite as sisters. Our mission is to be inspiration for this empowerment, that is progress to us.“ - LUCY
