Girls Inc. has been celebrating girls’ voices since 1864, and we’re proud to take that commitment to a new level with the Girls Inc. Dear World public education campaign.
Girls Inc. believes that all girls are inherently strong, smart, and bold, and showing them that their voices are trusted, respected, and above all, heard is a critical part of helping them stay that way in the face of gender stereotypes and pressure to conform.
We asked girls everywhere,
“If you could send a message to the whole world about what it’s like growing up as a girl today, what would you say?”
They spoke—and wrote, shouted, laughed, whispered, and signed. They said,
“The only person I want to be is me.”
Join Girls Inc. in honoring girls’ voices—help us ask the whole world to sit up, pay attention, and celebrate along with us. Welcome to Girls Inc. Dear World.
