  • A Journey from a Commoner to an advocate
    A Journey from a Commoner to an advocate
    Well, I can still recall how my mom and dad used to scold me over my studies. How they thought that being born as girl means "You have to be conservative, always at a low tone, behind the safe zone bars..." and what not! Now, when I look at my journey six years back, I really feel that lots and lots of things have changed. How from being a geek girl in my high school today I am the one who stood against the male dominated spirit fighting the college elections. India from ages has reflected it's clear inclination towards a male dominated prospect. But now, It's high time enough. We need to break this dogma. We need to raise our voice high enough. Today, I'm a girl pursuing her law graduation degree. I want to be the voice of millions of girls unheard not only in India but also across the globe. I Want to drive a revolution through which each and every parent of a girl child be proud to have one.  I want to say it aloud that "Now, it's enough of you all taunting the parents of having only a girl child." I am a girl, the daughter and a sister of anather girl. I'll be soon an advocate by profession and my lil sister dreams to be a fighter pilot!!! Listen it clear- Yes, A woman fighter Pilot! more...

    Who We Are
    Girl Up Tangier strives to create an empathetic community full of aware students willing to fight for change even when it doesn't benefit themselves. By educating students within our school community, Girl Up Tangier will enable students with the opportunity to not only teach their peers but others within Tangier and all of Morocco. Through cooperation and a desire to learn, members of Girl Up Tangier will make a difference within their community that they will remember for the rest of their lives and carry the same passion cultivated within Girl Up Tangier. Girl Up Tangier aims to enable girls within our community to change the lives of adolescence within the region and world. As a club, we also hope to raise awareness for important issues currently facing the world such as health, education, and security. Girl Up Tangier also hopes to bring light to all pressing issues relating to gender inequality, especially those which are easily reversed through education. Furthermore, Girl Up Tangier will work towards a community that is understanding of global issues and aspires to help with such issues. Contact us at girl-up@ast.ma if you want to get involved.

Without any hesitation, we protested with a placard saying “This is sexual harassment” in front of the banner and posted a photo ... more...

I asked them to write this letter to articulate their feelings on ... more...
