It is with mixed feelings that I inform you that this is the last issue of Girl New International. It has been a long two years. While a large part of Girl Museum’s work is to keep informed of the news and to share it with our community, being so laser focused on the grim realities has taken a psychological toll on our staff. We are deeply dedicated to our mission, but we are also not robots. Taking on the challenges facing all girls in the world has become just too much. This is the primary reason we are transitioning this project into a few news/opinion blogs per month. Also with the increasing costs of keeping our museum going, we do not have the money to support the newspaper going forward either. Thank you so much for being a part of this Girl News project. We produced 60 issues and that is good enough for now. Perhaps in the future we will revive it, but we need an emotional break from the news. And perhaps you do as well.
