“We are thrilled with ZADIG&VOLTAIRE’s commitment to Girls Rock SB + Amplify,” states Baron. “There is great synergy between the brand and our programs, which have empowered over 11,000 girls, women, and gender-expansive people around the world through music education, creative arts, community, and positive mentorship since 2012.”

“Art and creation are motors of life. It was natural and important for us at ZADIG&VOLTAIRE to support the work of Girls Rock SB + Amplify during Women’s History Month — to empower young people to move forward in life and lift them up with music.” – Cecilia Bönström, Artistic Director at ZADIG&VOLTAIRE.

For the campaign, ZADIG&VOLTAIRE tapped Girls Rock SB + Amplify artist partners Zella DayEzinmaLouise Post of Veruca Salt, and Nicole Fiorentino of The Smashing Pumpkins, along with Girls Rock SB + Amplify youth program participants Heaven Lee (she/her), Ciel Choi (they/them), Mihret Knuth (she/her), and Charley Mae Wilson (she/her).
