Her America

Her America is a multimedia project and digital content series filmed by an all-female team, documenting real women across the country. Lifetime TV criss-crossed America to find out what’s really on the minds of American women through short films, photo essays and podcasts.

We partnered with production studio Cousins and social-media strategist Ellen Knuti to create animated social media graphics, illustrations for the audio stories and develop animated photo essays.

Here are a few selects from the project.

New Jersey

Does hip-hop have room for gay female artists? Don’t bother asking 070 Shake, she doesn’t care much what anyone thinks.

Illinois

Abeer Najjar is a Palestinian-American from Chicago’s South Side cooking traditional food with hometown flair.

Oregon

Stormie is a construction worker by day, and an exotic dancer by night.

Alaska

When Alaskan dog sledder Pam Flowers tells her neighbor about her plan to become the first woman to cross the Arctic with her dog sled team, he says she’s bound to fail. Emboldened, Flowers sets out with her ragtag crew, overcoming brutal conditions—and angry polar bears—to beat the odds.
