Girls Write Now Celebrates International Day of the Girl
Girls Write Now is celebrating International Day of the Girl with a conversation championing the stories of women and girls. That afternoon at a private United Nations event, their girls will share their stories of what it means to grow up as a girl around the world and release their music video “Ode to Malala” on a global stage.
Afterwards, we invite you to join us at Tishman Speyer (375 Hudson) for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a roundtable discussion on the importance of a girl’s right to find — and own — her voice. The panel of distinguished women includes Beena Kamlani (Senior Editor, Viking, Penguin Random House) as moderator, with panelists Robin Morgan (author and activist), Rachel Fershleiser (Author & Publisher Outreach at Tumblr), Bridgett M. Davis (novelist, Into the Go-Slow), Farrin Jacobs (Editor, I Am Malala: Young Reader’s Edition), and Taysha Clark (Girls Write Now Youth Board Co-Chair). Panelists will weave their own narratives, exploring what it means to be a women writing today and honoring the women mentors and authors they couldn’t have become themselves without.
We hope you join us!
