Twenty five girls in grades 6-8 joined together to talk about self-esteem and positive self image for the first Girls Rising event. This event was visioned, planned and run by the student sub-committee of the Human Rights Commission. Girls talked about what made women powerful, what they had control over in their lives and why girls sometimes hide parts of themselves to the world. The event culminated with girls talking about masks they sometimes wear to fit into society and ways that they could intentionally bring out more of their unique characteristics and instead of hiding them, be proud and show them to the world.
The next Girls Rising event will be held on Thursday, May 23rd from 5:30-7:30 PM. We will be talking about body image and Sami Migliozzi from The Cure studio, will lead the girls in a Butti Yoga class. Save the date and stay tuned for a link to sign up!
