The 2nd Annual Girls Speak Out at the United Nations on October 10, 2014 was amazing.
You can watch it, right here.
Please understand that the poetry, songs and stories 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!
We hope the 2nd Annual Girls Speak Out inspires you to join us and take action!
Special thanks to our sponsor, 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 worked closely with the Missions of Canada, Peru, and Turkey to bring this year’s Girls Speak Out to the world.
When girls raise their voices and tell their stories, they can change the world.
