Resourcing Girls in the 21st Century

Finding a new language and vision

This can be a half or full day workshop – a half day where Maggie takes you through her findings – a full day where you also workshop a full plan of action.

9.15am - 12.30pm Workshop

In this interactive presentation Maggie will share key findings from her two year research into the lives of girls, which has culminated in her new book What's Happening to Our Girls? Over two years Maggie interviewed dozens of girls, teachers, school counsellors, psychologists, law enforcement and medical personnel to get an insider's view on what girls are experiencing right now. There are over 100 girls' voices in the book.
