There is a new organization with seasoned players taking on the sexualization of girls, SPARK Summit. SPARK is organizing a Summit – Spark Summit on Oct 22.
SPARK Summit will launch an intergenerational movement to support and stand with girls. The SPARK Summit will engage girls to be part of the solution rather than to protect them from the problem, to give them the tools they need to become activists, organizers, researchers, policy influencers, and media makers, pushing back against the increasingly sexualized images of girlhood in the media and creating room for whole girls.
If, like myself, you can’t make the New York City location, SPARK Summit is Virtual.
The virtual summit will be a live, interactive broadcast on the web. Registrants will be engaged live for a full day with the main goings-on at the Summit. Virtual registrants will be able to ask questions of the speakers, interact with other virtual participants, participate in mobile advocacy shout-outs, and lend their voices to the effort to challenge the sexualization of young women and girls on Summit Day and throughout the year. More information about how to participate will arrive in your email inbox in October (if you register).
Register here. Girls 14-17 are encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian’s permission.
