Girl Changemakers!

This Mother’s Day, 4Girls is honoring three exceptional girls and young women we were pleased to learn about this last month. Please enjoy their stories of community, outreach, and service.

Watch the video above to find out what 9-year-old Sophia from Massachusetts wrote in a letter to President Obama that got her an invite to the annual egg hunt!  “Where are the women?”  Brilliant 9-yr-old Sophia asked President Obama: why dollar bills don’t have women’s faces on them? She got invited to the White House. We think she should be on the $20 bill.

Lots of people agree with Sophia. See who has been nominated and VOTE HERE.
