Shredding Stereotypes with the Longboard Girls Crew

Great Big Story

In the male-dominated world of skateboarding, women face significant challenges in gaining exposure. But Valeria Kechichian is working to change that. In 2010, she co-founded Longboard Girls Crew, an international community that supports and promotes women in action sports. What started with a viral skating video has grown into an international organization with members in more than 80 countries.
