Greetings,

I am starting an all girls' center in the town I live. I am hoping to open my doors on August 1st. However, I need some 'filler' activities and skits - anything fun, friendly, and feminist. Any ideas?

Thank You,
DJ

   

Dear DJ,

Thanks for your note to feminist.com and for your work to start a girls' center. There are national girls' programs, like Girls, Inc. and Girls Speak-Out, which host programs nationally, so they might have ideas for you. Also, there is a great group in New York City called Lower Eastside Girls Club which hosts lots of things for girls.

Check out a great book by Catherine Dee, A Girls Guide to Everyday Life which lists lots of activities. You can read an excerpt here at feminist.com.

I hope these suggestions lead you to some interesting ideas.

Good luck.


Amy
