At Girls on the Run (GOTR) of Hunterdon, Bucks & Warren Counties, we envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

While significant steps have been taken toward securing women and girls’ equity, challenges still remain in girls’ ability to fulfill their potential, make choices, and live in a world where their authentic selves are accepted and nurtured.

 

Take action with us today—and everyday—as we join together as feminists to seek success and demand equality!

The Facts – The world is still not a just place for women and girls. As we prepare for International Day of the Girl, spread the word about why we stand as feminists for the work still ahead:
