ABOUT THE FILM

Two young women packed their bags and traveled across America in a mini-van with their mothers to interview hundreds of females about the “mean girl” phenomenon. As Lauren and Molly combine their experiences and passion to uncover the harsh reality within Girl World, the girls learn about themselves, females, the truth behind the issue and our cultures influence. The journey is packed with hysterical moments as the girls attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer. 

While there are plenty of fun moments, their emotional roller coaster around the country reveals raw and personal stories from girls that will shock you to your core. With the goal of establishing a national school program for girls, Lauren and Molly hope to put an end to the hate and FIND KIND.

The Filmmakers

In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson joined forces. Having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth, the young women decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. 

What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.

 

 

THE KIND CAMPAIGN

Since 2009, Lauren and Molly have held Kind Campaign Founders Assemblies in hundreds of schools across North America and have completed ten international anti-bullying school tours. Kind Campaign releases new and exciting initiatives each year such as their 19-week Kind Club Curriculum and Kind Camps.
