Celebrate International Day of the Girl: Support Girl Museum

They form a generation of young women who will soon begin to take over and shape the future, acting as an integral force within their communities and the wider world. However, the importance of these girls is often overlooked, their value undermined, and they face unique and often daily challenges based purely on their sex. These challenges take form in the home, schools, and workplace – and they are challenges that threaten their mental, emotional, and often physical well being.

Make Your Voice Heard at Girl Museum

Museums are places for – and by – people. People made the objects. Others acquired the objects for the museum. Other people put together the exhibitions that bring objects together into themes. And still others come to view, discuss, and find meaning in those objects. Most importantly, people created the stories behind every object and image you see. Girl Museum is a museum for, and by, the people. The stories you see here are those of girls around the world, in the past and present. Our goal has always been to let girls tell their own stories.
