Smart Girls: Amy Poehler and Meredith Walker. Image: Jade of Miniature Wonders
Late at night, after a long day working for one of the most celebrated live comedy shows on TV, Amy Poehler and her best friend, producer Meredith Walker often talked not about the heights their careers had reached on Saturday Night Live, but about how hard it was to survive their teenage years. So they created a web show for teenage girls that they would have liked when they were going through those difficult years called Smart Girls. There is a Smart Girls Facebook page too. It encourages girls to change the world by being themselves.
