SYNOPSIS: Finding a vacuum in traditional girls’ leadership-development organizations (Brownies, Girl Scouts, etc.), a group of women in the Bay Area took matters into their own hands, founding a troop that addressed the interests and needs of their community. What they established became the Radical Monarchs, reaching out to young girls of color to learn about self-acceptance, body positivity, inclusion, intersectionality, and more. Together they instill urgency for activism and social justice and provide a safe space for these often overlooked young women to come together. Not without some growing pains (and unkind words from trolls) the film follows the Radical Monarchs as they fight the power and inspire us all.
