GirlGov'ers Featured in PopCity

GirlGov’ers  Laila Al-Soulaiman (pictured) and Sarah Pesi recently participated in the Girls Coalition of Southwest Pennsylvania’s Be Inspired: Girls Can Change the World on Feb 23, the Sheraton Station Square.   The Girls Coalition invited young female activists to talk to local girls about getting involved in issues they’re passionate about.  The panel also featured  Julia Bluhm and Izzy Labbe of Waterville, Maine, who successfully pushed Seventeen magazine to pledge not to alter images of girls in its publication, to depict girls of diverse sizes, and to offer information about proper eating and exercise habits.
