They may seem small, but emojis are more than just funny faces. They’ve become how girls express themselves in text and online. But do emojis truly represent girls? Always partnered with award-winning documentarian, Lucy Walker to ask. Lucy’s unique background, which includes a passion for sociolinguistics in addition to her long list of film credits, helped uncover surprising findings when talking to girls. It turns out even emojis limit girls to stereotypes.
“It’s incredibly important that emojis represent the world we live in; that they empower girls to be and do anything and everything.”
