eGirl Power Aims To Stand Up To Gender Inequality

first_imgAs Ariana Grande fearlessly tweeted, misogyny and gender double standards are still deeply embedded in the US. Her mantra: No woman belongs to any other person but herself. That important message goes hand-in-hand with the mission of eGirl Power, a non-profit program that seeks to empower and educate females throughout the world.eGirl Power is raising awareness of the profound gender inequality that exists throughout many developing countries. While Ariana Grande champions this cause with a sisterhood of support, including other celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, eGirl Power seeks to rally a groundswell of support for the millions of girls in developing countries who don’t yet have a voice of their own.To make it easier for supporters to follow or donate to this important cause, eGirl Power is launching a text-to-give campaign.Text GIRL to 50555 to join the eGirl Power mobile community and make a donation.

More than 62 million girls are currently not in school simply because of their gender. More than 82 million girls face the prospect of child marriage, and most of these girls will never complete secondary school. In some developing countries, nearly half of the female population will become mothers before 18. And an estimated 100 million girls are subjected to child labor, including extreme exploitation such as slavery and human trafficking.eGirl Power asks, who is tweeting about these girls? Who will stand up to help them? A simple text is a good way to start.eGirl Power believes educated girls are one of the most powerful agents for social change. Not only will an education change the life of each girl, but it benefits the whole family, and eventually the entire nation. An educated girl will become a woman who is healthier, able to earn more income, and provide better healthcare and education for her own children, according to UNICEF. This is key to breaking the intergenerational chain of poverty. That’s why eGirl Power’s mission is to raise awareness and ensure that every girl has access to education.Popstar Ariana Grande declared she wants to live in a world where people are not valued by their significant other or who they are attached to, “but by their value as an individual.” eGirl Power seeks to make that goal a reality, not just here in the US, but across all borders.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more
