Starting Today:
No More

Sexual harassment and violence is an epidemic and it starts at a young age. Still, as a society we perpetuate attitudes and behaviors that harm girls and follow them into adulthood. #MeToo brought the issue mainstream. Let’s address the root cause. Together, we can build a more equitable society that values and promotes the dignity of all people.

Recognize
the Problem

Girls today grow up in a society that does not always value, respect, or protect them. They experience sexual harassment and violence at school, work, and online. At the root of this problem are limiting messages and harmful gender stereotypes that youth receive at a very young age, which create an imbalance of power that follows them into adulthood.

the Solution

We must unite to stop the sexual harassment and violence that girls face and create a healthier, safer culture for all young people. The problem is vast but change is achievable. There are steps that each of us – youth, parents, educators, and concerned adults – can and must take to change the way girls and women are viewed and valued.
