What’s it like being a girl today? We don’t think enough of the people in power know the answer. Which is why, in early September, we’ll be launching an exciting campaign to get girls’ voices heard in the lead-up to next year’s General Election.
Girls and young women from inside and outside Girlguiding have told us just how many issues they face today, because they are girls, and the changes they want to see. We want to make sure that their voices are part of the debate ahead of the election and we’ll soon be calling on politicians from all parties to prove that girls matter to them.
