I always want girls to know their full potential by understanding the depth of our strengths, and how we can change the world.
Girls Inc. is a leading advocacy organization dedicated to extending girls' voices, issues, and concerns to policy makers, corporations, and the media. Our Girls' Bill of Rights serves as the foundation for all of our work. These rights shape our responses to the difficult social issues facing girls, and serve as a powerful platform for empowering girls.
Military Justice Improvement Act of 2013: In May 2013 a group of bipartisan Senators and Representatives introduced the Military Justice Improvement Act of 2013. This bill seeks to redress the massive increase in sexual violence in our military by removing decision-making and reporting requirements from the victims' and perpetrators' chain of command. This critical bill will protect those who so honorably commit their lives to protecting us. Please join Girls Inc. in supporting this important legislation by urging your Senators and Representatives to cosponsor the Military Justice Improvement Act of 2013.
Girls' Rights Campaign: In Spring 2000 Girls Inc. launched a national public education campaign to help girls understand, value, and assert their basic rights, as outlined in our Girls' Bill of Rights. Be a part of the campaign by using tools to help the girl in your life exercise her rights.
Watch TV: Many television shows, news programs, or even commercials send harmful message about girls. Newspaper articles or ads can too. Don't like what you see? Use our Online Media Guide to contact your local stations and newspapers and set them straight.
Advocacy Statements: We have adopted a set of Advocacy Statements that spell out our positions on a range of issues affecting the rights and needs of girls. These statements are reviewed at every biennial meeting of the Girls Inc. National Council in light of current knowledge and needs.
