The School Girls Deserve is a Girls for Gender Equity campaign dedicated to ensuring that all girls, trans, and gender nonconforming youth feel safe in school.
In April, we demanded that the NYC Department of Education and the City Council hire 7 Title IX Coordinators to protect cis and trans girls and gender nonconforming youth from sexual harassment in schools.
We have since doubled that ask: We demand 14 full-time Title IX Coordinators.
Title IX coordinators are responsible for responding to all reports of gender-based violence and harassment in and around the city’s schools and for creating measures designed to prevent them from taking place to begin with.
