Girlsplained - the series
When three best friends start university, relationships are tested, sex becomes complicated and more followers mean more problems. Join Lauren, Janelle, and Yaz as they navigate life, love, friendship, sex, and relationships.
Girlsplained, the series, was created by us and produced with our awesome partners at Fully Focused Productions.
Girlsplained is a not-for-profit community group based in London, UK.
We envision young black and brown girls defining themselves in their communities by taking charge of their own health and rights. We do this through social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) methodologies, including entertainment-education (edutainment), via short films, web series and social media.
The group was established in 2018 after receiving seed funding from MTV Staying Alive Foundation. We strive to ignite fellow Black, Asian & Minority (BAME) women's health and rights through entertainment. We work closely with our partners, Fully Focused Productions, and our other collaborators to produce relevant and enjoyable content that our audiences inspire and own.
While our work begins in London, we are global-minded with a diverse team of strong women from different parts of the world, and all walks of life.
Priyanka is a co-founder of Girlsplained and works across strategy, operations and content production for the group. She is currently working as a Preventive Medicine doctor in Singapore. As a social and behaviour change communication enthusiast, in particular entertainment-education, she has a Master's degree in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, as well as a Master's degree in Filmmaking from Raindance LLP/Staffordshire University, She loves watching TV and movies (duh!) and having great conversations over fantastic meals with her favourite people. Her mood often fluctuates with how Liverpool FC is doing and her dream is to chill with Oprah, drink with Adele and karaoke with the Spice Girls.
