Cliques & Fitting In

August 1, 2014

Cliques and Fitting In

Blog Post By Sasha:

For girls, we want to feel accepted and fit in with other girls to feel important about ourselves. But this desire works against us.  Forming cliques, gangs, and groups makes it harder for girls to get to know other people and explore what it’s like for other fellow girls.

Girls in cliques, gangs, and groups often feel they are above other girls and try to put them down so they won’t have to compete against them. According to their standards, being yourself means you’re a ‘loser’ or you are “weird” for even trying to stand out.  What girls don’t know is that being weird is great!  You don’t need cliques in order to be somebody.

Like other girls, I love making friends and feeling important, but putting others down to feel superior is not the route to go. Try to think before you speak when you say things to others because it’s very common for girls to bully each other due to their own insecurities.

Most importantly, whether you’re in a clique or not, be yourself so people can see who you really are. Let your personality shine, and you will find people who think the way you do.

Girl Summit

August 1, 2014

African Girl Sisterhood Agenda
On July 22, 2014 the first Girl Summit took place in London, England, co-hosted by the UK Government and UNICEF, aimed at mobilising domestic and international efforts to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) within a generation. In England and Wales alone, an estimated 66,000 women are living with the consequences of FGM/C – an illegal cultural practice where girls’ genitalia are cut – with more than 20,000 at risk each year.
UN figures estimate that 125 million women and girls worldwide have been cut – and that at least 30 million more will be at risk over the next decade.

Dreams of a Life-International Black Women’s Film Festival Premiere

Dreams of a Life

If you disappeared, would anyone miss you?

Nobody noticed when Joyce Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in North London in 2003. Her body wasn’t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping, and with the TV still on. Newspaper reports offered few details of her life– not even a photograph.Interweaving interviews with imagined scenes from Joyce’s life, Dreams of a Life is an imaginative, powerful, multilayered quest, and is not only a portrait of Joyce but a portrait of London in the eighties—the City, music, and race. It is a film about urban lives, contemporary life, and how, like Joyce, we are all different things to different people. It is about how little we may ever know each other, but nevertheless, how much we can love.
