The young literary advocate Marley Dias is publishing an activism guide for children and teens. The nonfiction book will target ages 10 and up and will show kids how to turn their passions into action. It will explore “activism, social justice, volunteerism, equity, and inclusion, using social media for good.” The book will also encourage literacy and diversity and guide young people to use their strengths to create a positive change.

The Women's March extended beyond the United States, as similar protests cropped up around the world over women's rights and other issues, but what should we do now? How we can make a change in peoples’ lives at a larger level? For example through local non-profits, spaces and organizations through which we can act and have a very big and real effect. The key is to find your passion, and live your voice through your actions. We are so proud that WorldWideWomen are on the list of 10 things that you could do! #strongertogether #worldwidewomen #womensmarch #marchingforward

Katherine Young, a graphic designer, took matters into her own hands and decided to show Girls’ Life what their cover SHOULD look like. Putting her graphic skills to work, in just a few minutes, Katherine swapped out the cover girl for Olivia Hallisey, the 2015 Google Science Fair Grand Prize winner, and photoshopped in some new, inspired and empowering headlines. The result? A magazine cover that offers girls better alternatives to tips on how to “Wake up Pretty.” #rolemodel #worldwidewomen #strongwomen

Women are still underrepresented at every level of politics in the U.S., but the fact that a woman just lost the race for the highest elected office in the nation seems to be galvanizing women into action, rather than deterring them.

Overall, the average female literacy level in the region is less than 40%.
