I get as misty-eyed as the next person watching the Dove Selfie video, but when I stopped and thought about it, I realized it’s only one step up from telling girls they have to be beautiful in the first place. I’m taking a coursera course with Dan Ariely. In the first video, Professor Arieli explains that, as you…Details
Who cares that Disney’s “Frozen” is the top-grossing animated film of all time? Yesterday in The Verge we learned that Disney’s Frozen is the top-grossing animated film of all time.

With Nine, we wanted to…Details
When we created Purple, obviously, we wanted to create a person of color, but we didn’t want to pin her down ethnically as to whether she was of Asian, African or maybe even South American descent. I spent a lot of time studying different ethnic facial structures, and I think we’ve come up with a…Details
Purple and Nine™ is an upcoming 3D animated series that will get girls interested in science and technology (STEM fields for women). Today’s video interviews the actresses about the characters Purple and Nine. Who are Purple and Nine™? Hi. I’m Rebecca Rachmany, co-founder and CEO of Gangly Sister. We’ll be coming out with a pilot…Details
