Talk non-stop!

Encourage girls to speak out on topics that really matter.


  1. Each girl has one minute to talk non-stop about a topic of her choice – this could be a favourite hobby or something she feels passionate about.
  2. If the speaker pauses for more than a few seconds the others shout ‘stop!’; if she repeats herself they shout ‘repetition!’; if she says ‘um’ or ‘er’ they shout ‘hesitation!’.
  3. If the speaker is interrupted, she sits down and it’s the next person’s turn. If not, she’s completed the game!
