Festival of The Girl is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to inspire and engage girls aged 7 - 11 years and support adults to raise girls in a less stereotyped way.


Our Mission

We exist because we want to change what it means to be a girl.

We want to remove the limitations gender stereotypes place on girls.  And we want to start this conversation with primary school aged kids, and their grown-ups.

We've created global interactive events to give girls access to an incredible line up of female role models, workshops and activities that they can't always get at school.  Our festivals are safe environments for girls to have fun, try something new, and most importantly; leave with a boost of self confidence.

Our main annual event takes place every October coinciding with UN's International Day of the Girl Child.  We explore a huge variety of topics from careers, to body positivity, to mental health and sustainability.


Our Festivals

Festival of The Girl 2019

We were thrilled to host our inaugural festival in 2019.  With workshops, interactive stalls, Q&A’s and plenty of inspiring role models we shaped our festival around the theme of 

'Future Opportunities'.

In 2020 we took Festival of The Girl online.

"I learnt girls are capable of anything."

"Initiatives like this help bolster girls' confidence so it is more resilient and does not get eroded over time."


Support Festival of The Girl

We are a not-for-profit initiative built with passion, not funding.  If you can help support our work with a donation it will help us reach more girls and their families.

With your help, we can make sure that all girls are supported through primary school, and that they feel happy, confident and excited to follow their dreams. 

Together we can help them realise that being a girl wont hold them back because being a girl is their super power!

"I learnt how

to be myself."

Amber, aged 9

“It’s simple, you can’t be what you can’t see.  So let’s surround our girls with inspiring role models and empower them to confidently create a future of equal opportunity, a future where a woman’s worth is not judged by her appearance, a future where they feel safe. 

The future is hers.”

- Abi Wright, Festival of The Girl co-founder
