I always want girls to know their full potential by understanding the depth of our strengths, and how we can change the world.
Strong, Smart, and Bold: Empowering Girls for Life, published by Cliff Street
Books/Harper Collins in March 2001, is part of the national public education campaign by Girls
Inc. to help girls understand, value, and assert their basic rights. This book provides adults
with activities, organized by each of the six rights in our Girls' Bill of Rights, to do with
girls that help them develop a strong and positive self-identity. The book also contains tips
for helping adults break down stereotypical behavior towards girls that prevent them from
accessing their rights.
This creative action kit contains twenty-five pages of activities and resources for girls of all ages to do individually, or with family or friends, that will help them understand, value and assert their rights. The activities deal with issues like body image, community activism, careers, healthy risk-taking, and self-discovery.
Through Taking the Lead: Girls’ Rights in the 21st Century, girls have told us that they recognize outmoded gender stereotypes that limit their rights and they are ready for change. They also told us that adults play pivotal roles in their lives. What can you do to help the girls in your lives resist the stereotypes? Here are a few suggestions.
This colorful poster was designed with girls in mind! The poster features the six rights in language girls can relate to, and in an attention-grabbing style that will get girls talking. Hang it up in the classroom, post it in your locker, or decorate your room with it.
This poster first appeared in the NY Times in celebration of girls’ rights in March 2000. The powerful image of a defiant girl stating, “I know my rights,” serves as a wake-up call to adults to help the girls in their lives access their rights. The Girls Incorporated Girls’ Bill of Rights is printed along the right-hand side of the poster.
