We are the XX began with the desire of two women to see their generation’s values reflected in feminism and see themselves represented in media. Kassidy and Allison’s expressive journeys began years before they met. Both women were called to the art of communication; Kassidy through the creation of documentary films and her company, Journey of Action, Allison through her contributions to established media platforms and throughout her career in luxury fashion space as Donna Karan’s personal assistant and communications manager.
They were following different threads that brought them to the same potent place of intersection: women.
Their paths crossed, rather fatefully, at the Women in the World Summit. There, they formed an instantaneous, highly charged connection over their desire to see the women’s space ignited with the rebellious passion that coursed through them both.
