Red Bull continues its stellar “Pushing Forward” series with an episode highlighting some of the figures who are working towards gender equality in skateboarding. Entitled “Skate Like a Girl,” the latest entry focuses on the grassroots organization of the same name which is creating an inclusive community by promoting confidence through skateboarding. It’s through nonprofits like Skate Like a Girl that the real progression takes place: we all have to start somewhere, but it can be pretty hard to get off the ground if you’re feeling too intimidated to even roll around. (Learn more about Skate Like a Girl here.)
This episode of “Pushing Forward” also features one of skateboarding’s most influential pros, Vanessa Torres, who—in addition to introducing the first-ever Women’s Battle At The Berrics—has established a sort of blueprint for the next generation of female skateboarders.
