    Overview

    Girls Learn International (GLI), a program of the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), is educating and energizing middle and high school students to boldly take action for human rights, gender equity and access to education. 

    Girls Learn International (GLI), a program of the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), is educating and energizing middle and high school students to boldly take action for human rights, gender equity and access to education. With 220 active school-based Chapters, across 28 U.S. states and 14 countries, GLI is training and mobilizing more than 5,000 young people ages 10-18. Together with student leaders, including the Student Advisory Board, GLI is building a movement of informed advocates and a new generation of leaders and activists for social change. The GLI program provides a student club framework and educational materials for students to learn about human rights, with a focus on the obstacles that girls and gender expansive youth face in realizing their full rights, both in the U.S. and globally. The GLI Guidebook is the only study-to-action resource for peer-to-peer human rights’ learning designed to be used directly by students. GLI teaches leadership skills, and provides opportunities for students to connect with a network of student advocates and leaders locally, nationally and globally.
