Surrender Your Ground: The Ugly Truth About Girls and Safety

While boys are expected to ‘stand their ground’, girls are expected to ‘surrender your ground’. Tonya GJ Prince explores three cases where young girls who protected themselves from a violent trafficker were unjustly punished.

We call for an end to the expectation that girls aren’t valuable and worthy enough to have the same safety and protections afforded to the most privileged class of boys. A call for fairness and equality for all girls.
