The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

Girl Up

In honor of the United Nations' first International Day of the Girl Child on October 11th, and in conjuction with UN Foundation campaign Girl Up, Girl Museum is proud to launch our latest exhibition, Celebrating Girl Up.

The Girl Up campaign "[gives] American girls the opportunity to become global leaders and channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls." We here at Girl Museum know just how vital this mission is, and we're highlighting the participation of five girls involved in the program. Read about their goals and accomplishments, and explore through photographs their lives and five themes crucial to the Girl Up mission: Girls Helping Girls, Importance of Girls’ Education, Leadership, the Power of One, and Altruism.

This is an exciting time for girls, Girl Museum, and the Girl Up campaign. Please celebrate the first International Day of the Girl Child with us by visiting Girl Museum and viewing our Celebrating Girl Up exhibition.
