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

Festival of The Girl takes place in October in celebration of International Day of The Girl.  

This global interactive event (both live and virtual) gives girls access to an incredible range of speakers, workshops and activities that explore key topics such as careers, body positivity and mental health. 

Our Festivals are a safe place for girls to try something new, have fun and feel good about themselves.  

Our Festivals

Festival of The Girl 2019

- Future Opportunities

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, 

Future Opportunities.

Festival of The Girl 2020

- Future World

In 2020 we took Festival of The Girl online.

Young girls are our future change makers so we celebrated how girls can create an equal, exciting and inspiring Future World.

"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
