Being a girl in this world means to me that I have opportunities and I have choices.
Girls Inc. Girls Shadow Congresswomen
On April 22, 2010, nine Girls Inc. girls participated in “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” by shadowing women members of Congress in Washington, D.C. The annual event, organized by Girls Inc., Girl Scouts of the USA, Women’s Policy Inc., and the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, gave girls a firsthand look at life on Capitol Hill.
Girls from Girls Inc. of Memphis and Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and South New Jersey also met Olympians Apolo Ohno and Dara Torres and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Speaker Pelosi hosted the girls at her weekly press conference and escorted them to the House floor and private “Speaker’s Balcony” overlooking the city.
