White House Announces Girl emPower as Equal Futures Challenge Notable App

After a rigorous round of review from our panel of distinguished judges – including Jack Dorsey, Creator and Co-Founder of Twitter, and Academy Award-winning actor and advocate, Geena Davis – we’re thrilled to announce our notable app: Girl emPower, created by Laura Phelps and Andrew Cavanagh.

This free iPad app includes the following features designed to inspire girls to serve as leaders in our government:

  • A map highlighting women members of Congress all across the country that allows users to immediately learn about their biographies, read their latest tweets about the issues they’re focusing on, review their websites, and more. 
  • Inspiring videos of distinguished women leaders talking about their diverse career paths.
  • A collection of fun facts about how our government works and a quiz game that allows users to test their knowledge of what they’ve learned.

This app is ready to download – spread the word and help us inspire the civic leaders of tomorrow!
