Girls Through the Western Lens

GirlUpaa

Sunday, March 19, 2017—3:00 pm

Presented by: Nivedha Kannapadi and the UVa Girl Up organization

Girl Up is excited to partner with the Blue Ridge Virginia Chapter of the UNA to present this inter-generational dialogue about how the West perceives third world countries. We will take a critical look at our misperceptions and discuss the United States' actions in foreign countries that have presented challenges to native cultures.

Girl Up's members from the University of Virginia will give an interactive presentation about this topic and facilitate small group discussions with UNA members and UVa students. Girl Up is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, and works to empower girls globally.

Take a positive step to develop a future of American leadership in support of civil society and international cooperation benefitting girls worldwide.
