The HerStory Campaign supports girls in creating lives of freedom and fulfillment.
The HerStory Campaign is a joint initiative created by the non-profit 501(c)3 organizations Global G.L.O.W. and LitWorld. The Campaign is a powerful pairing of on-the-ground programming in 25 countries, working side- by-side with local partners and authentic media messaging. Together, we listen, we share and we respond to the urgency of girls’ lives and stories. We invite everyone to join with us to make the HerStory Campaign a worldwide movement.
Global HerStory Summit March 20-24, 2017
In March 2017, the HerStory Campaign will host the 2nd annual Global HerStory Summit (GHS). The Summit, held in partnership with UN Women during the 61st Annual Commission on the Status of Women, ensures that authentic and diverse women and girls’ perspectives inform action plans set forth to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The 2017 GHS will bring together teams of women and girls from LitWorld and Global G.L.O.W. communities around the world to be HerStory Ambassadors. They will spend the week developing their Community Action Plans and will return to their home communities with blueprints and resources for positive and impactful change driven by women and girls.
The week will be full of storytelling and arts workshops, opportunities to build new friendships and deepen the global HerStory network, visits to iconic sites in New York City, and the chance to make a big, innovative, actionable plan to effect positive change.

Stand Up for Girls on October 11th
Stand Up for Girls is an annual day of action in honor of the International Day of the Girl, which happens on October 11th. On this day we mobilize our HerStory community and supporters to host Story Summits, local events led by trained mentors and volunteers that allow women and girls to share their stories and learn from one another's experiences. Together we raise our voices on behalf of all the world's girls so that they can build fierce, fearless futures, lit from within.
