The Action Team

Day of the Girl-US is an 100% youth-led movement, and the Action Team is the team of young female-identifying activists in charge of it all. These leaders are passionate about gender justice and have put in a huge amount of work to grow the movement into what it is today.

    So proud of you, young women! We are working nationally to pressure Congress to lift the old 1982 Equal Rights Amendment deadline for you, all women, and all people! Gender equality is #5 of the 17 critical United Nations Global Goals ( ratified Sept. 25, 2015. We are also working in Nevada to be one of the last 3 states needed to ratify the #ERA for the 3/4 of 50 states required! EVERYONE can help get the deadline lifted, just send a text to 52886 to contact your gov’t. representatives – thanks! You can see the work we’re doing in Nevada at this Facebook post: and at My Twitter: JanetteD . More info is also at and make plans to see the awesome new movie “Suffragette” with Carey Mulligan at . We are the modern day suffragettes and must unite for our long overdue #EqualRights!
