The Flurt Mandate
Flurt! is a not for profit organization that works to empower young women. Our goal is to be the voice of our generation, replacing mainstream media.
We are a creative collaboration of writers, artists, photographers, designers and entrepreneurs. We are activists, educators, students and feminists. We are gay, straight, bisexual, transgender and unlabled. We are people from all over the world, working towards one struggle: Spreading the revolutionary idea that we are important and we need to be heard.
A community that hopes to educate each other, we strive to improve the standards young women set for themselves. Through voicing opinions and sharing stories we believe we can bring each other closer together. We’ve morphed flirt to Flurt! because we are more than sex objects and baby makers – we are real women with real voices, examining culture and Flurt!ing with the rules of society. We’ve changed girl to gurl because we are not inferior little girls who should shut our mouths – we are young women leading the future by speaking our minds.
We are here to spark a fire of ideas which will provoke the smallest of voices – to shake things up, stir up controversy and make a statement. Our motto: “Well-behaved women seldom make history” – Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.
