What is this?

Have you heard of it?

Why not?

According to the GGE, they are all about gender equality.

This is who they are:

Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) promotes physical, psychological, social and economic well-being of girls, women and ultimately the entire community.

GGE believes that widespread violence against women and girls points to deeply rooted gender discrimination that must be tackled as a peace-building and human rights priority. A Brooklyn, New York-based coalition-building and youth development organization, GGE acts as a catalyst for change to improve gender and race relations and socio-economic conditions for our most vulnerable youth and communities of color.

In order to put an end to the barriers of segregation and discrimination based on gender, race, and class oppression, GGE takes a dual approach of community organizing and service provision. GGE mobilizes 600 NYC boys and girls ages 8-19, women and men under Title IX of the Education Amendment and its ten points, to work as a collective toward systemic change in all of the support networks that shape the development and achievement of girls and women. Concurrently, we nurture the optimal development of girls, women and, ultimately, the entire community through a variety of programs and projects.

GGE’s work is dedicated to the unrealized feminists and activists who had no idea that there was power in their voices. It is also for the girls whose only example of leadership had been Angela Davis, and who then found their own innate leadership skills to facilitate workshops, or stand up for bullied classmates. We feel absolutely privileged to advocate, educate, support, train, and provide a safe space for the feminists, activists, and change makers who are helping to mold a world where gender justice is a reality.
