Love: The Respect Rally, a 4 hour program for teen girls.

1 in every 3 females worldwide has been abused during her lifetime…75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities such as disordered eating, cutting, bullying, smoking, or drinking…1 in 5 teens who have been in a serious relationship report being hit, slapped or pushed by a partner.

Though the status quo paints a grim picture, there is a remedy—RESPECT. What if the 900 million girls and young women around the world took a stand? To respect themselves, respect each other, and to spread respect for people. Can you picture what our world would be like then? We can.  The Respect Rally is a four-hour event—followed by a 24-session curriculum (The Respect Keep It Going! Kit)—that inspires and equips girls with lasting respect-building skills.


Time for mom-Me is a book that shows you how to include your needs in your daily schedule.  You’ve read books about what to expect when you are pregnant, how to care for your newborn, and tips on raising your children.  Finally, here’s a book for all moms who devote their time and energy to everyone else, yet inevitably leave little for themselves.
The Respect Rally is a four-hour event—followed by a 24-session curriculum (The Respect Keep It Going! Kit)—that inspires and equips girls with lasting respect-building skills. You can either book a Rally or be trained to lead one yourself. During our trainings, advocates can learn to lead a Respect Rally for their schools, neighborhoods, youth organizations or prevention agencies. You also learn how to customize it to meet your organization’s scheduling or specific prevention needs. By 2010, our first milestone is to train 2,000 leaders to lead the Respect Rally program for 500 girls each—1 million girls reached.
