Why is gender equality important to you?
Growing up as the oldest of three daughters, I was the first sibling to experience moments where I was treated differently because of being female. From school to social media to my professional career, I have experienced sexism firsthand, as every female has. Being a decade older than my sisters gave me a leg-up in the fight for equality, and when I hear that they have similar stories to mine, 10 years later, it’s impossible not to feel frustrated. Now, I’m proud to work alongside We Are the Girls Activists at Plan to fight for change!
If you believe in the power of girls to shape the future, join me and a growing community of determined optimists by becoming a We Are the Girl Activist!
