Letter from the Editor XVIII

Girl News International

Dear Reader,

There are many things that exist that we should not need. Say, a maternity collection for twelve-year-olds. And we are clearly in need of basic things that many cannot afford – for example sanitary pads and tampons, and not only in developing countries. Even in Europe, female hygiene articles are taxed as ‘luxury goods’. And then there are things we do need, but may not know it. Things that are brought into this world by fearless girls and their supporters. Boxing Pakistani girls, skater girls from Afghanistan, health educators from Uganda. Slowly, the scales are moving in the right direction. Please help us to support this change by reading, sharing and spreading the word. Thank you.

With strength and hope,

Ashley Remer & Kristina Kraemer
