INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL
Members of Global Fund for Women’s Adolescent Advisory Council (AGAC)—Polina, Aweqawe, Marla, Giovanna, and Rajasi—join voices from all around the world today to highlight how #GirlsLeadInTech.
Girls, young women, and non-binary youth are determined that technology and innovation be keys to the world they wish to live in: tools for freedom of expression, for mobilizing, for creativity and joy.
And they are putting these tools to good use—young people are relying on digital spaces for their activism and movement-building work more than ever before. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis they have increased online organizing, created spaces for solidarity and convening, built digital networks and communities—all while navigating growing authoritarianism, ongoing colonialism, patriarchy, and ageism in their everyday lives and online.
