TOGETHERTHERE - HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PLEDGE?
A girl looks at the world around her; the country's leaders and captains of industry; at TV, movie, sports, and pop stars; at fashion magazines — what do her possibilities look like? Who are her role models? How can she be it, if she can't see it? It's time we made changes that support her path to success. Together, we can get her there. Go to www.ToGetHerThere.org for more information and to sign the pledge.
