“Young girls can really effect change”, says Sarah Nancollas, CEO of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. “With Dove’s support, they are influencing policy makers to find a way to hear the voices of women regardless of ethnicity, size, body shape, body image.”
The 11 girls involved in the Young Women’s Advocacy Forum were empowered to turn their ideas into action. “If I see something I don’t think is right I cannot keep quiet”, said Diana, from Guides of Mexico, “thanks to this opportunity, I can now find the resources to help me shape my feelings into specific actions that can bring about change”.
For over five years, WAGGGS and DSEP have attended key United Nations events, such as the Commission on the Status of Women, to advocate key opinion leaders, raising awareness about body image issues and providing solutions to address them.
Together with WAGGGS, we’re helping millions of young girls around the world be who they want to be. You can find out more about WAGGGS at their website🔗 or download our Free Being Me programme.
