When you hear statistics like girls as young as six years old believe men are smarter than women, or that 60 percent of teenage girls compare their bodies to fashion models, you want to do something about it. That’s who you are.
By giving to Girls Inc., YOU CAN.
You can provide hands-on programs that address the challenges girls face today, like self-esteem and bullying. You can provide a safe environment where trained facilitators encourage girls to express themselves, and help them believe they have a right to resist gender stereotypes. You can inspire a young girl to be the first in her family to go to college, or to pursue her interest in technology. You can change lives.
Your gift will teach girls that beauty is not what’s on the outside, but who they are inside. It will help girls think critically about the media messages they receive every day, and empower them to be confident in their abilities. Because of you, girls in our community will grow up healthy, educated, and independent.
Together, we CAN inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold!
