GenderHopes marks the International Day of the Girl on Wednesday, October 11, at the National Council in Monaco Ville, under a new name: She Can He Can.
After four successful years as a registered charity in Monaco, GenderHopes is changing the name of its association to She Can He Can to better reflect its new mission and objectives.
The launch will be hosted by Nathalie Amorratti-Blanc, Member of the Conseil National and President of the Commission “Women and Family Rights”. Ms Amorratti-Blanc will speak about the National Council’s commitment to celebrate the International Day of the Girl and to support local initiatives, such as She Can He Can, to support girls’ leadership.
She Can He Can aims to inspire and support girls to take leadership roles but it encourages both girls and boys to challenge deeply-held, life-limiting gender stereotypes and to realise their full potential, independent of their sex, the organisers say.
Founded by Vibeke Brask Thomsen in 2011, GenderHopes has put the International Day of the Girl on the agenda in Monaco. It has also worked since its creation to combat domestic violence by informing victims of their rights and resources.
