what this has meant for the girls

In our last session with the girls we ask them what (if anything) has changed in their life. Here's what they told us:

  • I can stand up to my friends and verbalise when I see something wrong
  • Feel more comfortable approaching teachers without the fear of being shut down
  • Been able to let my family know how I feel excluded
  • Not scared of what boys think of me anymore and will live to please myself
  • No longer afraid of uncomfortable conversations
  • Deleted boys and people from social media I never thought I could, because of the way they disrespect themselves and women
  • Felt more love in my family
  • Competing for school soccer team because I don't care what people think anymore
  • Felt strong enough to bring very inappropriate comments from male classmates to my teacher
  • Feel more comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable rather than avoiding things

just a few examples of what happens when you change your self-worth
