Blogging for Change

Blogging for Change

I speak out because it’s a part of who I am.

Meet Girls’ Globe Blogger:  Camaro West  in Canada

“I’m an advocate for women’s rights and empowerment because I can’t keep quiet when things feel unjust,” says Camaro West who is working as an advocate for girls and has been blogging for Girls’ Globe for two years. “Often the voices that need to be heard most are the quietest.  I’d like to see the girls being impacted by issues at world conferences. I want to hear from them and from the women and girls around the world doing AMAZING work in their communities with very little resources.” 

“The key to making a difference is to really listen to them
and put them in the center of everything we do.” 

People underestimate the impact of journalism.  

Megan Foo

 Meet Girls’ Globe Blogger:  Megan Foo in Hong Kong  

As a high school senior, Megan Woo was inspired to speak out and enlighten her contemporaries about solutions that can catalyze positive change in communities and in the lives of women and girls. “I’ve had the time of my life raising awareness,” says Megan. “I was inspired after reading “Half the Sky” by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn,” Last year, she started the Hong Kong chapter of Women Lead which is the first and only development organization for young women in Nepal. Listen to find out what Megan thinks about the power of  blogging online and how “a single blog post and even a 140 character tweet can propel a movement and make a difference.”


“Some of the most powerful work can be done in your own community,
blogging online, tutoring a girl, or organizing a local fundraiser.”
