Developed by Girls Incorporated, Project Bold was constructed to help girls and young women learn important skills and strategies that could help lead to safer lives within their homes, relationships, and communities (Girls Inc. Project Bold, 2015). Through the aid of a three step program development system, researchers within Girls Incorporated developed a theory of change surrounding violence that girls and young women experience, gathered data to support the proposed theory of change, and from that theory, created a logic model and measurement strategy that became known as Project Bold (Project Overview,

In The Color Purple, Alice Walker illustrates the lives of a female African American before the Civil Rights Movement. A novel that describes female empowerment, The Color Purple demonstrates the domestic violence women faced in the South. Walker tells the story through Celie, a young African American girl who faces constant hardships until she stands up for herself with the help of her closest friends – other women undergoing the same difficulties. Even though men controlled females in the South, the author emphasizes the strength of female empowerment because females struggled to survive during this time.
A pink ribbon symbolizes breast cancer awareness for women. Their first appearance occurred in 1979 when a wife, whose husband has been taken to Iran started to tie yellow ribbons around the trees in her front yard, her dream was to see her husband come home again. The second appearance occurred 11 years later when an AID activist looked at the yellow ribbons that represented the soldiers fighting in the war, he turned the ribbons bright red representing blood. In 1990, the first breast cancer survivor launched a campaign named ‘Komen for the Cure’.

In Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, society oppresses and diminishes the female characters, viewing them as secondary to men. Moreover, throughout the play, each woman from the rainbow shares stories of how she or another woman is isolated from her community, due to a man’s maltreatment. These women are left alone to deal with the humiliation of rape, pregnancies, abuse, and objectification, burdens that detach them from the people around them. The alienation of women in For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf exposes society’s idea that women are inferior to men.
When Girls began in 2012 I watched with interest. I’m always fascinated by young women writers when they push boundaries. Intrigued to see that the first season showed four young women in their 20s trying to survive in darkest Brooklyn, I was riveted by the first crisis: Hannah’s parents cutting her off financially. What a great idea for an
The TED Talk that impacted me the most was “Teaching Girls Bravery Not Perfection” by Reshma Saujani. It about how we should teach both boys and girls to be brave. This impacted me because I’ve been taught to only do things I know that I will do good on. Saujani ran for congress one year and all these big newspapers were interviewing her. Then she lost and suddenly all the newspapers were telling her that she wasted 1.3 million dollars. I’ve done some brave things before like challenging a kid on my cross country team to a race. Everyone was cheering me on as I ran, but when I lost everyone made a face like they had assumed that I would win. People had expected me to win. They thought that since I was brave enough to challenge him, I would
