Girls Lead Month of Action
During the month of March, Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) is organizing the Girls Lead month of action at high schools and college campuses to raise awareness around the critical need to end the exclusion of girls, which results in their voices going unheard.
Through this month of action we will increase awareness and inspire action in support of a bipartisan bill called the Girls Leadership, Engagement, Agency and Development (LEAD) Act (S. 2766) which recognizes and promotes girls’ civic and political leadership as a priority for U.S. foreign assistance efforts.
Good organizing takes good planning.

The documentary Girl Rising shares the stories of nine girls from around the world and the barriers they face to gain an education.
Clips from the documentary are a great educational tool to create more awareness and encourage action.
Encouraging your campus or high school community to register to vote is a great way to put civic engagement into practice!
