A Little Bit About The Republic
Andrea Minnillo (Owner)
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Andrea currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband Brian and three children who are the inspiration behind The Girl Republic. Never shying away from an adventure, Andrea and her family love to travel and resided in Boston, MA and San Diego, CA.
The idea for The Girl Republic was conceived during clothes shopping trips for her children. Andrea was often frustrated and confused by the difference in girls and boys clothing subjects. Girls were supposed to be princesses with gowns and tutus, while boys clothing depicted action or accomplishment. Boys items represented passions, while girls items reinforced the objectivity that women and girls have been fighting hard to shed.
Today’s women and girls continue to break gender barriers and blur societal lines. The Girl Republic was founded to participate in and embrace that movement.
