Girls Inc. Bill of rights
Although the times and programs have changed, Girls Inc. always has been, and always will be, all about the girls. With a continued commitment and dedication to making a measurable and lasting difference, Girls Inc. is a strong advocate for girls and honors the Girls Inc. Girls Bill of Rights.
Girls have the right to be themselves and to resist stereotypes.
Girls have the right to express themselves with originality and enthusiasm.
Girls have the right to take risks, to strive freely, and to take pride in success.
Girls have the right to accept and appreciate their bodies.
Girls have the right to have confidence in themselves and to be safe in the world.
Girls have the right to prepare for interesting work and economic independence.
The Girls’ Bill of Rights comes from the Girls Incorporated Advocacy Statements. These advocacy statements, first created over a quarter of century ago and adopted by the entirety of Girls Incorporated, are at once the expression of our values and the guiding principles of our social engagement. An articulation of our convictions, they are the framework within which we pursue our mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, and our vision of empowered girls and women in an equitable society.
