Erin Prather Stafford
Award-Winning Writer/Editor, Filmmaker and Founder Girls That Create
As the mother to two young girls and holder of a Master’s degree in gender and international development, Erin Prather Stafford is acutely aware that fixing gender imbalances in the media is key to changing gender disparity everywhere. That’s why she launched the online platform Girls That Create, a website that provides parenting resources for raising creative girls while also encouraging greater female representation across the arts.
Erin is also the Executive Producer of the award-winning documentary WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES, which traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. The film also examines the portrayal of powerful women in mass media and why representation matters. WONDER WOMEN! had its national broadcast on Independent Lens | PBS and was chosen for Women and Girls Lead, a multiyear public media initiative to focus, educate, and connect citizens worldwide in support of women and girls. Erin is also the recipient of a Barbara Jordan media award.
