October 5th: HerStory
Girls have powerful stories to share about how they challenge and overcome injustice everyday. Today, the HerStory Campaign asks girls and their allies around the world to share a story about a time they or a girl they know spoke out or took action to challenge injustice.
Share a photo or video of girls in action and tag @GlobalGirlsGlow and @LitWorldSays with #HerStoryCampaign #GenerationGirl.
Then, join our live Twitter chat from 11-12pm ET.
The HerStory Campaign listens to, amplifies and champions the voices of girls through innovative after-school programming focused on storytelling, mentorship and self-advocacy. We work alongside key stakeholders such as UN agencies, girls’ rights NGOs, universities, and local, grassroots partners in 27 countries to join, support and encourage girls to share their stories, advocate for themselves and create positive change in their communities. Together with our partners, we provide safe spaces and mentor girls with our unique curriculum, building girls’ confidence by cultivating modern literacy and self-expression skills. We believe that with a strong voice, a girl can transform herself, her future, her community and the world. The HerStory Campaign is an initiative of Global G.L.O.W. and LitWorld, two 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations
