Strong Girls Initiative
Strong economic futures start with equal opportunities at school.
Too many girls receive early messages that they shouldn’t pursue science or sports, or that they shouldn’t report sexual violence. One in five women will be victim of an assault or attempted assault while in college. Girls have 1.3 million fewer opportunities to play high school sports than boys.
Our Strong Girls Initiative seeks to enforce existing laws and advocate for new policies that ensure all students can go to school safe from the threat of sexual harassment and unburdened by gender stereotypes.
