Challenges, challenges and more challenges!

With increased safety, educational opportunities and recognition that their voices count, girls and young women have more opportunity than ever to be problem solvers and contribute to building a more safe and sustainable world for everybody. But girls and young women still face many challenges related to gender and often have to sacrifice their own dreams with expectations of what they “should be.”

As blogger Courtney Martin says, this is a generation of girls and young women “who were told we could do anything and instead heard that we had to be everything.”

What are your thoughts? I am very interested to know what you think 🙂
