HeForShe Program Sponsored by the United Nations, Be Safe Online

Girls Succeed! Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women
To empower girls to make their dream jobs come true.

In the Girls Succeed! eBook, Olympic hockey player Angela Ruggiero wasn't allowed to play ice hockey with the boys, but she sure showed them she could do the job as good and even better than the boys. 

Horticulturalist Sharon Loving relished digging in the dirt and growing plants and flowers. Boys aren't the only ones who can get dirty.

HeforShe is a program sponsored by the United Nations to achieve gender-equality worldwide.

Do you believe boys AND girls can excel in the same subjects in the classroom?
You can help to turn your classroom into an opportunity for change by being aware of gender-biased language used by students and instructors. You can also help to stop bullying in your school and online.

Do you like to play games online?

Online bullies want your silence. Enlist your friends and followers to send messages of support to victims of social media trolling. You’ll help turn the internet into a safe space for everyone.


Be Safe Online 
Here are some tips to make your online experience a good one for you and for your friends. 
  • Follow the family rules, and those set by the Internet service provider.
