Join us for the 2nd Annual Girls Speak Out at the United Nations! October 10, 2014, from 3-5pm
Girls 13 and over are invited to attend this extraordinary, FREE, event, which uses multi-media performances to tell girls’ personal stories of tenacity, struggles and challenges to shine the light on the irrepressible spirit that binds all girls together from all over the world.
But you must REGISTER by Tuesday, September 30th using the form below.
Please understand that the poetry, songs and stories that will be performed at this year’s Girls Speak Out include depictions of girls’ experiences with difficult topics, including bulimia, rape, abuse and violence against girls. These stories represent many of the realities faced by girls around the world; it is with these stories that we elevate our voices and stand together for global girls’ rights. It’s a powerful message that may be best suited for girls over 13. Thank you!
Special thanks to our sponsors, Janssen, for supporting this incredible opportunity for girls to be together and heard by World Leaders, UN Ambassadors, UN Representatives.
Thanks, too, to the Working Group on Girls who is busy organizing the Girls Speak Out alongside the Missions of Canada, Peru, and Turkey.
When girls raise their voices and tell their stories, they can change the world.
