With expertise in the area of communications and advocacy our network spans over twenty countries with unique global reach and diversity. Our goal is to amplify youth voices and highlight relevant issues related to women and girls around the world, and to create spaces for women and girls to be heard on issues relevant to them. Our readership spans almost every country with interests ranging from feminism to global development and women’s health to motherhood, and beyond.

Since the launch of girlsglobe.org as a blog in 2011, through the power of social media Girls’ Globe has grown into a global network of passionate young women who are leading the way in global advocacy and communications to advance the health and rights of women and girls. Girls’ Globe aims to bridge the gap between action at the grassroots level and international advocacy and decision making. Enormous change has already occurred through empowering young women in our global network to write, speak and report at an international level. The Girls’ Globe platform fosters new connections and creates a safe space for young women’s voices to be heard, which further instills confidence to advocate for their health and rights and that of their peers.

The mission of Girls’ Globe is to:

raise awareness and educate others about global issues concerning the rights and health of women and girls

advocate for change both online and offline at international and national levels in regards to the rights and health of women and girls

inspire you to join the movement for change and give concrete suggestions on things you can do to promote gender equality

The Girls’ Globe logo aims to turn the female symbol into a positive, forward and upward facing stroke. The form has been taken from a hand drawn gesture, representing the personal and human accounts of real events around the globe that are posted onto the blog by the various Girls’ Globe bloggers. Girls’ Globe is a registered non-profit organization in Sweden with a team located around the world.

  1. What a wonderful organization! I’m looking forward to following Girl’s Globe in the future, and contributing my own assistance to this cause. I’ve already shared this site in my Author’s Page in order to spread the word! Thank you for sharing! JB Richards, Author

    • Dear Jeannie, Thank you for your encouragement and for spreading the word about Girls’ Globe! Raising awareness is the first step and we can all work together to do so!

  2. Considering your mission “to raise awareness and educate others [which include boys and men too I guess]” about women’s and girls’ issues, I think you might benefit by involving boys and men also appropriately in your team and interventions. Apology if I misunderstood your aim or approach.

    • Thank you for your comment! Engaging men and boys is incredibly important to reach gender equality and we must work together to do so! There are some amazing men and organizations that we feature on our site that work specifically to create a more just and equal world, including the MenCare Global Campaign, Sonke Gender Justice Network and Promundo.
      In regards to our team, as Girls’ Globe specifically focuses on the situation of women and girls, we also want to raise the voices of women and girls around the world, and empower the women and girls in our team too. We will keep spreading the word about the amazing initiatives men and boys do and organizations that specifically engage men to end gender based violence, promote girls’ education and reduce poverty through gender equality campaigns.

    • Thank you for the encouragement! I am happy you enjoy Girls’ Globe. Please continue to spread the word and help us raise awareness for women and girls around the world.

    Awareness about the issues that affect the girls is one thing, more worrying is the absolute lack of interest on the part of some of these affected girls to take advantage of opportunities for self improvement made available to them by people with genuine interest in their lives. The pervasive culture in Africa has successfully jaded the poor girls from any high self aspirations. I speak from experience having employed two young ladies as nannies and tried unsuccessfully to convince them to start free home tutoring.

  9. Networking will certainly update the information on the situation of women and girls and also the innovative interventions that improved their lives. Good initive
