The Power of an Educated Girl


October 11th, 2017 is International Day of the Girl. Girls Inc. is celebrating this year with a five-day focus “The Power of an Educated Girl,” which brings awareness to how as a community we can empower girls to lead healthy lifestyles.

Less than 50% of high schools offer comprehensive sex ed, which helps girls make informed, responsible decisions about their sexual health and wellbeing. You can help by advocating to educate girls by:

Creating a save space for conversation; Modeling healthy relationships and behaviors; Advocating for comprehensive sexual education; Promoting media and technology literacy; Appreciating, embracing and advancing diversity.

Engage with us on Facebook or Twitter to champion and create a positive, safe, and affirming culture where girls can grow up strong, smart, and bold. #InternationalDayoftheGirl #EmpowerHer #HerSexuality.
