Girls Inc.’s mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.

Girls Inc. believes that every girl has the right to be herself and resist gender stereotypes; to express herself with originality and enthusiasm; to take risks, strive freely and take pride in success; to accept and appreciate her body; to prepare for interesting work and economic independence; and to be valued for who she is.

It is that spirit that makes Girls Inc. a grateful beneficiary and enthusiastic participant in the She.Is.Beautiful event, celebrating the development of a healthy, happy, physical life.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
