Girls Inc. News & Programs
National Girls Inc. Week
Have you been a victim of bullying or harassment? 
 
Bullying and harassment is an issue that affects all of us. In fact, in the past year, 1 in 4 high school girls has been bullied on school property.
 
In schools, in relationships, and online, girls are being humiliated, threatened, and victimized. Bullying and harassment negatively affect everyone involved - the victim, the harasser, and the bystanders - as well as the learning environment.
 
 
At Girls Inc., we are energized and committed to the work necessary to advance girls' rights and opportunities and one of our top advocacy priorities is ending bullying and harassment. It is our responsibility to make sure girls feel safe in school, at home, and in their communities.
 
We are dedicating Girls Inc. Week, May 8-12, to bringing awareness to bullying and harassment.  Join us and sign our pledge -- commit to standing up for girls because with you in her corner, she will succeed.
