Campaigning at Girlguiding

Girls like you are a powerful force for change. You can lead campaigns to improve the lives of all girls and young people

Girlguiding is girl-led, which is why all of our campaigns are based on our research and our members' views. This helps our campaigns to do as much good as possible - Ashvini Rae, 18, Girlguiding Advocate

Take action to improve the lives of girls like you

We want to support you to talk directly to politicians and change-makers. Because when you speak out, you make change happen.

Why is campaigning important?

We know from our research that many girls and young women don't feel listened to by people in power. Through campaigning, you can ensure that key issues you care about are addressed in a real, tangible way. We're here to support you to do that.

Through our Advocate panel and other opportunities, girls plan our campaigns, speak out in the press and talk directly to decision-makers. And since you know better than anyone what girls want, we use research like our Girls Attitudes Survey to make sure our broader advocacy work is focused on the things that affect you.

Media Sexism

  • In the 2017 June General Election girls made their voices heard, and influenced the society we live in by voting in record numbers. The June election has also seen a record number of female MPs elected. Girls tackled media sexism in the Election, calling for commitment from all media outlets to stop commenting on politicians' appearances.

And this is just the beginning. We've got lots of exciting plans in the pipe line, chock full of opportunities for you to speak out. Keep an eye on this page for more details coming soon.
