It’s a Girl Thing – (0:20:47)

Directed by Augusta Mariano

It’s A Girl Thing is an honest depiction of what many women experience in college. It is a female centric and female driven series that uses each episode to highlight a way in which women experience the world around them differently than men during their late teens and early twenties. It’s a Girl Thing follows Lily and Allie, two college roommates and friends, as they mature and learn more about themselves while navigating a college atmosphere filled with both subliminal and overt sexism. Through six roughly half-hour episodes It’s a Girl Thing tackles six main topics under the umbrella of gender inequality. We chose to focus not on the glaring issues of sexism, which are currently central to our national conversations around gender and feminism; but rather on topics that are more subtle and intrinsic to the ways in which men and women behave based on our societal understanding of gender. We also selected each of these topics because we feel that 18-25 years old is the time in which these topics are the most prevalent in the lives on women. For our pilot episode we focused on “ghosting.” Ghosting is a millennial dating phenomenon that occurs in relationships when seemingly out of nowhere, the communication from one person suddenly dissipates without explanation; often initiated by men in heterosexual relationships. During the pilot episode Lily and Allie both experience ghosting, but in two different kinds of romantic relationships. Both girls are left feeling heartbroken, rejected and disrespected. Through their experiences we examine both their personal feelings as well as the implications of ghosting on society as a whole.
