The Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University launched Teach a Girl to Lead™ with the goal of making women's public leadership visible to the next generation. We want to inspire girls in grades K-4 to follow in the footsteps of women leaders, and help young boys grow up with more inclusive ideas about who can lead.
For the second year, we are reaching out to every woman state legislator, member of Congress and governor across all 50 states and asking them to visit a local elementary school, read a book about women’s leadership, and donate the book to the school library. Last year, hundreds of elected women participated. This year we want to build on that momentum.
Help us celebrate Women’s History month by spreading the word about Teach a Girl to Lead™!
