This report represents a step by Alliance for Girls to ensure that the voices, beliefs, and experiences of girls and gender-expansive youth inform every aspect of gender-based work. It is intended to be a practical tool for girls’ champions interested in designing holistic, research- and girl-informed interventions that address the root causes and not just the symptoms of violence faced by those they support. This is a report for girls by girls. It is a report that provides direction for girl champions—parents, caregivers, service providers, and all caring adults in the lives of girls and gender-expansive youth—on how to support safety and healthy relationships for girls and gender-expansive youth.
