Lead like a girl!

It’s time for change. It’s time for girls and women to lead the world with brains and hearts.  Today leaders are almost all men: 93% are Heads of State and 92% are Heads of Government.


For change to happen, we connect today’s political leaders with adolescent girls – the next generation of leaders.


Join #Girl2Leader and #LeadLikeAGirl!




#Girl2Leader is a worldwide campaign launched by the Women Political Leaders Global Forum (WPL). The campaign takes place under the distinguished patronage of the President of Malta, H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.

Lead Like A Girl! We want more girls to get involved in politics!


Social media and blogs are at the heart of this campaign, to reach many girls around the globe.


The key day of the campaign is the ‘International Day of the Girl’, 11 October 2017. Female politicians from all over the world will each host a group of young girls to give them a personal introduction to politics to show: politics is a woman’s job!





Host: H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro  Preca


European Parliament


Hosts: MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri; MEP Marietje Schaake; MEP Hilde Vautmans; MEP Julie Ward


Special speakers: VP Mairead McGuinness; MEP Viviane Reding



The #Girl2Leader Ambassadors further promote the message. Together, we will help girls understand how to navigate the complex system of politics, at the national and European levels.
