Mia Bolton humbly created Lady Days in 2015 as a personal project. With an unwavering belief that strong and diverse women aren't appreciated enough in mainstream media, she interviewed friends who represented a new side to the traditional surfer girl. She simultaneously worked at Mixte Communications, where she directed media relations and communications strategy for up to 12 grassroots environmental and social justice organizations including Environmental Health Coalition, San Diego Organizing Project, the San Diego County Bike Coalition and the North American Bikeshare Association. Through this work, she deepened her commitment to justice and it has undoubtedly shaped the future of Lady Days.
Today, Lady Days celebrates women who push societal boundaries and live with authenticity, resilience and a deep commitment to helping others in the way that is truest to them. It is our honor to share the stories of women of all ages, professions, ethnicities, religions, cultures, sexual orientations and walks of life.
If you brought her enough coffee, Mia would tell you that she is:
Passionate about the responsibility we all have to make the world a more accepting place
Confident that everyone has a story worth telling
In love with film photographs, salty mornings and contagious belly laughs
