I’m an author of young adult fiction and I write about girls because every girl deserves the opportunity to pick up a book and see herself in its pages. I write about girls because girls, and their stories, matter. It’s my way of letting them know. In my newest novel, All the Rage, Romy is ostracized by her community for speaking up about an assault. The absence of any kind of support takes an incredible toll on her--she feels like she doesn’t matter.
On April 14th, 2015, take the opportunity to tell the girls you know—and the ones you don’t—that they are seen, heard and loved. Share advice. Be encouraging. Tell us about or thank the women in your life who have made a difference in yours. Use the hashtag #ToTheGirls along with your personal message of support and encouragement across your social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram etc).
