Our Global Initiative

As we continue to expand beyond New York City, our mission is simple: to amplify and build a girl-led global feminist movement. GBH Across Borders continues to partner with international allies and activists to foster solidarity between communities of girls all over the world and spotlight global issues girls face.

Everywhere we go, Girl Be Heard seeks to promote cultural and educational exchange, build leadership skills, and create safe community spaces. Engaging local communities in other countries, Girl Be Heard catalyzes change around human rights and gender equality, centering girls as leaders in their communities and the world at large.

Building a Girl Movement

Seven out of ten girls have or will experience physical or sexual violence in their life. At Girl Be Heard, we facilitate healing and empowerment to give girls a platform to speak about their experiences and have their voices heard.

Girl Be Heard began in 2008 with just twelve girls. Today, with over 170 members, it is an international movement that engages local & global audiences in schools, refugee camps, faith-based communities, detention centers — as well as at the White House, the United Nations, and TED conferences.
