About Us

We are a 501(c)3 that provides multimedia resources and education about amazing women of history.


Gal’s Guide mission is to build an independent women’s history library and research center in the United States to preserve, collect, share and champion women’s achievements and lessons learned. We will act as a catalyst to creators who utilize our resources to guide others to these amazing role models who have been waiting in the shadows of history for too long.

Current Projects

Library & Research Center: we are in the process of building women’s history library and research center. Our temporary location will be in Noblesville, IN. We are taking donations of books and materials that document women’s history around the world.

Gal’s Guide Podcast:  our adult podcast features a roundtable discussion where each guest brings one cool thing to the table that relates to women in our monthly topic.

School Outreach Programs: We offer four exciting school outreach programs tailored for Elementary through University and in 30 minutes to 1-hour presentations.

Uhura Training Academy: Gal’s Guide organized 16 hours of programming for Starbase Indy 2018. Creating the fun and adventurous theme of Uhura Training Academy with programs like “The Life and Legacy of Nichelle Nichols” and “Secret Codes,” we merged STEM subjects with a Star Trek theme provided high-quality learning programs for all ages. Uhura Training Academy will return to Starbase Indy in 2019 to continue providing cadets of all ages educational programs inspired by our favorite Communications Officer. Our theme this year is female inventors and scientists.

Past Projects

Your Gal Friday:  our student-friendly podcast showcases a gal in our galaxy that we can all learn from. Winner of 2017 Indy Pop Con Best Family Podcast Award. Hosted by Dr. Leah Leach and Phoebe Frear.

Meetings: Once a month we gathered for an educational meeting with a speaker, a set topic, and discussion.

Kate’s Take Podcast: We are so honored to be the new home of this five-time award-winning podcast. Filmmaker and public speaker, Kate Chaplin takes a film that has influenced her life and dissects it to show listeners the hidden lessons within.

Directed by Women Event: In September of 2016 & 2018, we partnered with the Directed By Women World-Wide Viewing Party to showcase a day of women-directed films as well as educational programming.
