Welcome to The Girl Project. This community has been established as a resource for anyone who cares for and about girls growing up in today's world. Growing up female is hard; society at times seems determined to force little girls into little boxes, and it can be difficult to counteract those messages.

"...I now realize that little girls are so overwhelmed in this male culture that the story of little girls' lives is whispered, while the story of little boys' lives is shouted in books, movies, cartoons, songs. There is no female parallel to Huck Finn. What is clear to me now is that we do not celebrate the wonderfulness of little girls nearly as much as we should."
- Judy Mann, The Difference: Growing Up Female in America
