JUST GIRLS

In our society, a typical response to dismiss girls is “just girls.” As if they do not matter, and their voices can be silenced or dismissed. Our initiative, Just Girls is about making an inclusive space for these voices to be heard so that we can build a diverse collective which goes beyond gender, income, race, language, sexuality, age, caste, religion. Please contact us at justgirls@childrenfirstindia.com if you would like to contribute.
