Create a World of Possibilities: Speak Up for Girls’ Education
This petition had 2,644 supporters
Join us as we stand up—and speak up—for girls’ education around the world by pledging and sharing your support.
The most powerful message a girl can receive is there are no limits to what she can pursue. Regardless of what problems she wants to solve when she grows up, she needs to know nothing stands in her way. Girls’ schools send that message to girls every day as places where girls and their unique capabilities are embraced for what they are rather than limited by what society expects them to be.
Educators play a critical role in empowering girls with the tools and an informed perspective to reach their full potential and become influential contributors and leaders in our complex, changing world. As a global community of educators, parents, students, alumnae, and advocates committed to the education and healthy development of girls and young women, together we:
- Inspire the next generation of girls to lead with courage, competence, and empathy.
- Engage the power of many voices to strengthen our schools, communities, and world.
- Collaborate globally with individuals, schools, and organizations to advance girls’ education, bringing greater value to our students.
- Challenge limits so girls will imagine and explore new possibilities.
- Cultivate a deep respect for the intellectual strength and impact of girls.
- Empower girls to find and use their voices.
- Promote life-long education, independent thinking, and understanding for global perspectives.
- Prepare girls for lives of commitment, confidence, contribution, and fulfillment.
Sign this pledge today! It is a call to action to awaken the world to the importance of empowering girls through a single, inalienable right: access to a quality education.
