Spring and Summer Programs

There is still time to sign up for our Spring Programming!

This year our program is April 15th - April 18th, 9am - 2:30pm for ages 9-12, and will focus on self-defense and well-being.

In this action-packed week, we will work with youth in their understanding of self-defense (both verbal and physical), including where it's appropriate to use these skills and how to find help.

Then, we will focus on regulating ourselves with fun self-care activities to help finish out the school year strong, smart, and bold.

Hurry, there's only a few spots left!

International Women's Day

March 8th is recognized as International Women's Day. Many people think it is a day for us to kick off the rest of Women's Herstory Month, or for a presidential proclamation. Here is a bit on the history of this day:

On March 8, 1857, female textile workers marched in protest of unfair working conditions and rights for women. Also on March 8, 1908 women who worked in needle trades protested child labor laws, sweatshop working conditions, and demanded women's suffrage. In March of 1910, March 8th was observed as International Women's Day.

Years later in 1978, Women's History Week started, updating curricula to include women. Then in 1987, the National Women's History Project convinced Congress to include the entire month of March as a celebration of all cultural, economic, and social contributions that women have made throughout history.

This year, the theme of International Women's Day's is Inspire Inclusion.

It is important that people understand, value, and seek out women and girls to further uplift them, and ourselves as a society. Here at Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area, we honor youth in our programming by seeking out youth involvement, voices, and experiences to ensure we are representing what our young people are going through. We believe all young people are important and hold critical information on how to shape the future of the world.

Woman's Herstory Month

March is Women's

Herstory Month!

This month celebrates all the accomplishments made by women throughout history. Without the resiliency of our changemakers, we would not have nearly as many rights as we do today.

Some notable figures in the movement for equality:

Sojourner Truth:

Born as Isabella Baumfree, she was born into slavery. After her inhumane treatment, she ran away to a nearby abolitionist family. This family bought her freedom for twenty dollars. Sojouner Truth then started to travel across the country speaking out against slavery, and promoting women's suffrage. Truth is most known for her "Ain't I a Woman?" speech.

bell hooks

Born Gloria Jean Watkin, she chose to use her great-grandmother's name instead of her own when she started to publish poetry. hooks is known for her many different lectures, books, and writing that focus on the intersectionality of race, class, and gender.

Angela Davis

Angela Davis (born to a family of activists) quickly found herself involved in the Civil Rights movement and made significant contributions. Angela Davis was known to speak out against the mainstream flow. She was a professor, heavily involved in politics, and often spoke out against community injustices. Davis is most infamously known for her time in jail. In 1970, guns purchased by Davis were used in the armed takeover of a courtroom in Marin County, California. Davis was arrested, and then later aquitted, after a large public movement to gain her release.
