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!
Thanks, too, to the Working Group on Girls who is busy organizing the Girls Speak Out alongside the Missions of Canada, Peru, and Turkey.!
The Working Group on Girls has ben doing such good work since Beijing conference – so proud that GS is part of it and does so many leadership tasks within in it. thanks. Clare
