Super Heroine Status
Be the ultimate Super Heroine and start your own School Girls Unite group!
I’m sure if I wasn’t part of School Girls Unite, I would have more time for other extra-curriculars. But I wouldn’t change this experience for the world – those things wouldn’t put girls in school or raise awareness about gender equality issues. And I wouldn’t have the leadership skills, social skills, and organizational skills that I have garnered from School Girls Unite.
– Alison Kahn, Chapter president
The more global activists in different parts of the country, the greater the impact.
