We take g*rls seriously ...

… by partnering with girls and gender expansive youth through our G*rls Advisory Board, Muse Program, G*rls Coalition Groups, G*rls Workshops, and G*rls Rock! Conferences. Since 2000, Hardy G*rls programs have been igniting curiosity, fostering thinking critically, building coalitions, and challenging the status quo. We’re committed to changing the culture, not fixing the g*rl. HGHW works with 1,200+ girls and gender expansive youth annually through year-round, statewide programs.

JanuHairy 2021

This year, for JanuHairy, we’re diving into the history of body hair removal.

Come along with us as we wax poetic, pluck out some anecdotes, and shave off the mysteries.

Program Fundamentals

Just G*rls?

Gender is a social construct and for centuries it’s held onto a binary (boys & girls) system. HGHW does not believe in the binary; the deep history of systemic sexism and transphobia has uniquely harmed self-identifying girls and gender expansive folks. This is who we work with. As consistently learning intersectional feminists, we welcome and celebrate folks across all identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, religions, economic statuses and sexual orientations.

Know a young person (girls and gender expansive folks only, please) who is doing incredible things in Maine?
We want to highlight their work.
Tell us about them!
