Girls & Women

Boys are given the same restrictions girls face around the world, this is how they respond

Girls and women around the world face restrictions in their personal and professional lives. In some places and cultures these restrictions are seen as the status quo.

To show how ridiculous these ideas are, the Global Citizen team tested out these restrictions on a group of boys at a school in New York City. How they respond, is how the whole world should be responding to gender inequalities.

Check out the way these boys react and sign the petition in TAKE ACTION NOW to protect the rights of girls and women around the world. It's time to stop denying opportunities to children of all genders.
