Girls Bill of Rights

Movie star Jane Fonda is among those spearheading a Girls Bill of Rights campaign by Girls Inc. that seeks to inspire young women "to be strong, smart, and bold." The bill shows girls they have the right to:

*Be themselves and resist gender stereotypes.

*Express themselves with originality and enthusiasm.

*Take risks, strive freely, and take pride in success.

*Have confidence in themselves and be safe in the world.

*Prepare for interesting work and economic independence.
