Diverse and Empowered Girls: A practical guide for girl activists30 March 2020
This guide is for girls who have something to say; girls who want to use their voices to fight injustice. Developed by girl activists, Las Simonas, this guide has been created to help guide your activism journey from personal processes, to collective action.
Why is this guide necessary?
You might have heard that we, girls, are the future. And it’s true. But we’re also the present! We are each unique and wonderful, and we have a lot to contribute to our families, our communities, and to the world in general. We believe that we can change the world, that we have changed the world, and that we are changing the world. Many of us have identified injustices and inequalities – maybe even in our own lives –, and many of us want to do something to change them.
Who is this guide for?
This guide is for you, it’s for me, it’s for your friends, it’s for my cousin, it’s for our neighbour. It’s for all the girls that have something to say; girls that want to use their voices to fight against injustices. This guide is for girls that want to live freely, that are smart and can identify inequalities, and that are brave enough to fight against them. This guide is for girls who believe in themselves and in other girls. It’s for girls who care about their rights and the rights of their friends, and that want to fight to defend those rights.
