G*rls Coalition Groups
Hardy G*rls Healthy Wom*n is happy to offer virtual coalition groups for the 2020-2021 school year. This is a late start for a school year program so our intention is to keep the groups together through the rest of the fall and spring. Groups are led by two college aged women or gender expansive people from Colby College. These Muses are trained and supported by Hardy G*rls staff. Groups have a set time and meet via Zoom once a week. Meetings work best when participants have a space free from other adults including parents. Conversation topics and activities are chosen by the Muses and participants in collaboration and often begin with an exploration of gender and a questioning of norms placed on g*rls. As the group finds their stride, they often work toward an action project - finding a way to take back some control and make a difference in their schools or communities.
There are two ways to sign up for a group:
1. Sign up as an individual - we will do our best to place you with a group that works for your schedule and that includes young people of approximately the same age as you.
2. Sign up as a group - do you already have a club or group that would like to participate in this program? Are you a teacher or school person that would like to coordinate a school group? Are you a motivated young person that can find 7-9 peers that would like to do this with you? Select "person representing a school or organization" below to get started.
*Why the Asterisk?* Gender is a social construct and for centuries it’s held onto a binary (boys & girls) system. HGHW does not believe in the binary; the deep history of systemic sexism and transphobia has uniquely harmed self-identifying girls and gender expansive folks. This is who we work with. As consistently learning intersectional feminists, we welcome and celebrate folks across all identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, religions, economic statuses and sexual orientations.
