Stories of Girls’ Resistance


Stories of Girls’ Resistance is the largest ever collection of oral and narrative history of adolescent girls’ activism, offering a window into girls’ lives and their resistance in all of its messiness, pain, and power. A multi-year, multi-site project spanning regions, organisations and offerings with many contributors and co-conspirators.

Leading the work in each region are Story Curators who are deeply embedded in movements and girls’ work. Working with regional Story Collectors, they curated over 150 individual stories from over 90 countries across the Middle East, North Africa, West Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa, Latin America, The Caribbean, The United States, South Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus, and The Pacific.

Each individual story holds a lifetime of wisdom and tells us so much about girls’ individual lives and their resistance journeys. Explore all the individual stories across all the regions.
