L. The Girl-child   Read what was the dream for girls 20 years ago.

WGG has a call out inviting girls to rate Beijing in the girls grade Beijing Survey.  Have you presented this survey to girls to complete.  All of the girls doing this survey will have been born after 1997.  Beijing took place in 1995 and is 20 years old this year.  Have things changed for girls?

Good Shepherd responses to this invitation have come from surprising places – Malaysia (16)  Madagascar (21) Myanmar (12) Nepal (4) India (106) Philippines (12) Mexico (131) New York (Nativity High School).  We congratulate those who participated and have expressed their experiences and opinions.  We continue to invite others to do so.   The results will be presented during the Commission on the Status of Women 59th Session between March 9 – 20, 2015. Girls 18 years and under are eligible to contribute.
