The HerStory Campaign’s founding organizations, Global G.L.O.W. and LitWorld, are hosting a parallel event to the UN’s 63rd Commission on the Status of Women alongside four of our implementation partners: Friends of Thai Daughters, NICE Foundation, Otra Cosa Network, Art of a Child, NOVA Academy and Detroit Public Schools.

Girl leaders from HerStory programs will share our model for engaging young women and girls in leading sustainable development projects through girl-designed community action plans to create greater gender equality.

We work with grassroots partners in 27 countries to listen to, amplify and champion the voices of girls through innovative programming that cultivates modern literacy skills, fosters self-advocacy and give girls the opportunities and resources they need to create the change they believe is most needed for girls.

Presenters will include HerStory community leaders and girls from Nepal, Peru, Thailand, Uganda and the United States. You will also hear from Global G.L.O.W. founder Kylie Schuyler, executive director Katie Rootlieb and LitWorld executive director Dorothy Lee.

Get free tickets on our Eventbrite page.

The Global HerStory Summit

The Global HerStory Summit (GHS) is a week-long annual conference held in New York City, in partnership with UN Women as part of the United Nations annual meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women. The Global HerStory Summit brings HerStory Youth Ambassadors to New York City to share the power of girls’ stories.

Girls are selected to attend the Summit at the U.N. through a competitive application process to represent their communities at the five day Summit. Together as a network of powerful changemakers, the girls present the findings from the Summit to global leaders and ensure their voices are truly heard.

Stand Up For Girls

On International Day of the Girl, the HerStory Campaign mobilizes people of all genders, from all over the world, to advocate for a girl’s right to share her story. By learning to read, write, and share stories, girls understand that their words have the power to create transformational change at the community and international level.

On October 11th, communities around the world will host events to celebrate girls and raise awareness about the unique strengths and challenges girls face globally. We can all take action and Stand Up for Girls on this day, honoring the stories of girls and inspiring individuals, schools and communities worldwide to join us!
