Today in the Jabrouli Village in Lucknow, India, 80 women joined us for a conversation about the progress they’ve seen in their lives, their communities and the challenges they still face.
The kidnapping of over 300 teenage girls at Chibok Government Girls Secondary School in Nigeria has captivated attention and headlines across the world, inspiring outrage, compassion, and calls to action. The girls were taken by Boko Haram, whose very name declares that education is sinful.
On April 17, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and America Ferrera hosted “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation.” This conversation was the first in a series of live and virtual dialogues designed to hear directly from girls about their lives, experiences, and hopes for the future.
Last November, Secretary Clinton announced the Clinton Foundation’s newest initiative No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project. In the few months since then, we’ve already reached some remarkable milestones.
