What’s Going on in Myanmar One Year After the Coup?

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar lived under a tight military fist for 50 years. Similar to North Korea, Myanmar’s people had no communication with the outside world.  And the world did not know about them. In 2010 Aung San Suu Kyi, the people’s hope, was

The Forgotten Women and Girls: Criminalisation of Abortion in Kenya

Imagine being jailed for up to 14 years for trying to end your pregnancy because a morally driven political system deems this to be a crime. The Kenyan penal code that criminalises abortion and same sex relations does so under sensationally subjective sections that read

Maureen’s Story: What Young Women can Achieve Despite the Hardest of Conditions

Ten-year-old Maureen was working as a nanny miles away from her village for less than USD 7 a month. By 12 years of age, she had lost her father, her step-father and even her mother. On several occasions, she was sexually harassed and beaten till blue. On some days, she fed herself from trash cans on the streets.

Maureen’s story is deeply moving, but what stands out is her relentless fight for her rights.

A Practical Young Feminist Guide to Global Convenings

The 26th United Nations Climate Conference of the Parties (COP26) was a glaring example of what happens when grassroot organisers are excluded from conversations concerning their lives. Intended to place the world on a path towards averting a climate disaster, the summit failed after leaving the Global South and young people out. To counter this, we must scale up our efforts to facilitate spaces for young feminists, in all their diversity, to connect and conspire for a just present and future.

In this post she shares practical advice and learnings to create inclusive, feminist global convenings.

Why Girls’ Globe is Suspending Its Use of Facebook and Instagram

Tech giant Facebook Inc., recently renamed Meta, has for a long time known of its detrimental effects on people. This includes negative effects on teen girls, women, minority groups, entire societies and democracies. Despite their knowledge, they have done very little to improve the safety of their platforms.

Girls’ Globe can’t condone the behavior of this monopolistic company that knowingly prioritizes profit over the safety and wellbeing of people in our world. We are a media platform that amplifies voices for gender equality, human rights and social justice and we will take no part in supporting a company that knowingly does the opposite.
