Girls addressed worldwide issues on Global Girls Day
June 23, 2007
Global On Saturday June 23rd, Girls International Forum (GIF) hosted the 2nd annual Global Girls Day event at Macalester Collage in St. Paul, Minnesota. For this event, Girl Summit Leaders facilitated workshops on girls education, human trafficking, gender-based violence, and HIV/AIDS.
Presenters from the Minnesota AIDS Project, Asian Media Access, TVByGirls, Civil Society, WATCH, and New Moon Magazine all helped make the day a great success!
Girls participated in day-long workshops to learn more about global issues and work together to create active solutions. The girls came up with some great solutions, such as theater, poetry, writing letters to policy-makers and using images to build awareness and support among legislators and the public to advocate for change. The day closed with an ice cream social and a West African and Hip-Hop dance performance.
