Margaret Butler: Girls’ Agency and Community-Driven Change

Amina Umuhoza, Margaret Butler and Julia Wiklander outside of the Solidarity Studio. They are standing in front of a large illustration of the portraits of women.

“Local leaders have the answers, they understand the social dynamics that girls are facing, they have the connections to community, and they’re often ignored.”

Margaret Butler is a co-founder of Amplify Girls. In the Girls’ Globe Solidarity Studio, social entrepreneur Amina Umuhoza speaks with Margaret about her journey. They talk about the transformative power of girls and young women across East and Southern Africa.

They also talk about girls’ agency, community-driven organizations and solidarity.
