The climate crisis makes it harder for girls to go to school. Yet, if all girls had access to 12 years of free, safe, quality education, they could help make communities more resilient and reduce the impact of global warming.
@MalalaFund's new report:
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2021 is now open! If you're aged 11-17 anywhere in the world, send us your poems. Intergalactic submissions considered too. This year's judges @poetclare and @YomiSode can't wait to read your work!
Enter by 31 July:
I really really want folks who are not writers to know the poem @TheAmandaGorman wrote would be so immensely challenging to write, and would involve so much emotional labor to simply conceive of.
Thank you so much! Often people only see the glossy end product, not the sweat and the tears that we bleed onto a page to birth a poem.
Written by one young woman (10 yrs) in admiration of another young woman who makes words "bend and blend" and who writes about "scary and important things" in a way that is "still beautiful, like fire." Thank you @TheAmandaGorman for inspiring the next generation!
A lesson we all learned recently — more women of goodwill in the political arena can literally save democracy.
On International Women’s Day on March 8, join @HillaryClinton, @chrissyteigen, @TheAmandaGorman, and me in supporting women Democrats to run!
Just when we thought we couldn't love her more. @TheAmandaGorman continues to inspire the students we support - learning differences do not have to be viewed through a deficit lens. Hit like if you agree! @UnderstoodOrg #representation #visibility
