Girls Out Loud

We believe in the power of girls to change the world!

In Plan’s decades of experience, we’ve seen it happen. We’ve been cultivating young leaders since 1937, and we’ve seen what they can do when they work together.

That’s why, as part of Plan’s We Are the Girls campaign, we created Girls Out Loud, a group of girls between the ages of 13 and 18 living in the U.S. Through our private Instagram account, these girls safely share their thoughts and feelings about the experience of being a girl today — and talk about ways we can create change together.

One of the Girls Out Loud group’s first projects was collaborating with Unsplash, the internet’s source of freely usable visuals. Together, we challenged Unsplash’s community of photographers to rethink the way girls are seen and revamp stock images to represent girls on their own terms. You can learn more about that project on our blog.

We are always looking for more girls’ voices to join this group! If you identify as a girl, are living in the U.S. and are between the ages of 13 and 18, we invite you to join this community!
