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.
