Stop the Violence: Speak Out for Girls' Rights
Voices against violence curriculum
As part of the Stop the Violence: speak out for girl’s rights campaign, this curriculum will help five million children and young people learn to talk about violence, understand its root causes, recognize their rights and develop the skills and confidence to claim those rights for themselves and others. It will empower girls and boys, young women and young men to be leaders, to speak out and take action.
Girls in every country across the world are being subjected to many forms of violence – this is wrong and must stop.
Girls have the right to live free from violence and the fear of violence. They need to be aware of their rights – and find the voice to create a global movement and actions to end violence.
Building from a whisper to a shout, we need to talk, join together and inspire action around the world.
Read about the facts and figures and find out why Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are taking action.
