Rebel Girls

Rebel Girls was founded by Elena Favilli in 2015 after she and her co-author Francesca Cavallo became increasingly aware of gender discrepancies in children’s literature. Under Elena’s direction, Rebel Girls has since released another anthology, a journal and a chapter book series.

Throughout the coming year, Rebel Girls will be continuing to expand into new digital and product categories, all within their mission to revolutionize girlhood. They want girls to know that anything is possible!
