about us.

girltalk. is a diverse team of girls focused on individuality, empowerment, and creativity surrounding issues in girlhood. We value friendship, unity, and vision. This idea came from a short film we made, and came together with a bunch of motivated girls to create a movement that will touch on different films, fashion, culture, society, and more. All artwork is original by the girls at girltalk. 

We also made a little video that talks about our mission too!
Watch it here: ABOUT US


girltalk. started out as a series of 3 short films made for a film production class at San Francisco State University. Three of our founders (Savanna, Sydney, and Maddy) connected and formed a beautiful bond over our experiences and decided to branch out and start a blog.

LIBRA season!        On Monday, the new moon is in Libra and it looks super positive! Dwelling in peace should be one of the themes. All you need to do is commit to it!       Mercury is in Libra right now too! (Just until Oct 9) which is great! Libra and the planet of communication should go hand in hand and so, you might have seen rationality in your communication. You will not have a tendency to make quick decisions.         In other news, Venus is in Scoprio from Sept 9— Oct 31. This is the time when you will seek a deeper emotional bond. This will get extremely heated in most of our close relationships as our vulnerabilities seep out. Try to not be as impulsive and slip under this sensual spell, beware if you do, it might bring it down to all or nothing.  Mercury is in Libra right now too! (Just until Oct 9) which is great!

Happy 4th of July. America’s Independence Day. The day the nation officially separated itself from England and built its own empire on the basis of equality. The Founding Fathers stated: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. What beautiful words, filled with hope and unfortunate false promises. In 1776, people of color were not free, not independent, and not even considered people. While today we are free, we are not treated equally due to prejudice and loopholes within legislation as well as social and cultural influences that still rot our society today as a result of slavery. Every year on the 4th of July I take time to read Frederick Douglass’ speech, “What to a Slave is the 4th of July”. Then, the 4th was “a day that reveals to him [slaves], more than all other days in the year, the gross i


LISTEN TO US ON FRUITY THOT HERE: FRUITY THOT OUR RADIO SHOW EXPERIENCE: by Sydney Redd Quite recently, we were lucky enough to be featured guests on our friend Matt's radio show at San Francisco State University!! The show is called Fruity Thot, and explores a wide variety of topics from art and culture to identity and empowerment.  We were super nervous at first; Savanna and I had never been on a radio show before and weren't exactly sure what we would talk about.  We met on campus and walked to the studio together, exchanging our internal butterflies and hopeful expectations.  Once we entered the studio, Matt gave us a quick tour and played the playlist we sent him days prior. We put on our headphones and danced to "Genius of Love" by The Tom Tom Club and the ever so iconic "Dirrty" by  Xtina, pumping ourselves up. Once we started the interview the conversation flowed. Matt did a great job of building on our comments and asking us insightfu
