Girls Can’t Skate

Girls Can’t Skate spotlights an all-female skateboarding community in New York City. By exploring these women’s shared passion and resilience, it celebrates female empowerment in contrast to the machismo culture and normalized violence against women that plagues much of the world.

These women are challenging barriers of the traditionally male-dominated sport at a historic moment for skateboarding, which will be part of the next Olympic Games. The images were captured before the COVID-19 pandemic, and then during the lockdown via FaceTime.
