Her Mission

Based in Port Angeles, Washington and Portland, Oregon, Ivy Ross Ricci is nationally regarded as an unassuming activist, a grounded nomad, and a country rock philosopher who has spent the last 20 years championing on behalf of the freedom and creative expression of girls' and women's voices nationwide. “Girls Sit Screaming," the song, and the video, are a culmination of two decades of groundwork as a songwriter and an educator. She explains, 'Girls Sit Screaming' is an honest song of defiance and freedom that exposes the many double standards that girls and women experience in the classroom, in the workplace, and in our society in general. It is an anthem for the cultural shift we are experiencing in which women's voices are beginning to be heard, believed, and valued. Let's creatively move towards a safer world for girls and women to express ourselves, to do our work, to walk without fear, in freedom, creativity and love.
