We offered 9 Gender Empowerment workshops at Camp GLOW for Nicaraguan girls, and we wanted to know what the girls wanted to learn before we assumed anything. Here are just a few of the insightful, surprising questions they asked.
How can I reduce “machismo” and “feminismo” in society?
Is one’s self esteem related to their sexuality?
Why do some people still feel empty inside after reaching their goals?
