About Hardy G*rls Healthy Wom*n

At Hardy G*rls Healthy Wom*n (HGHW), we are committed to changing the culture, not fixing the g*rl. HGHW is a Maine research-driven nonprofit organization that partners with Maine girls and gender expansive youth through its programs — G*rls Advisory Board, Muse Program, G*rls Coalition Groups, G*rls Workshops, and G*rls Rock! Conferences. Since 2000, HGHW’s programs have encouraged curiosity, critical thinking, coalition-building, and challenging the status quo. HGHW works with 1,200+ girls and gender expansive youth annually through year-round, statewide programs.

Why the asterisk (*)? Hardy G*rls Healthy Wom*n uses an asterisk to indicate that the organization welcomes and celebrates the inclusivity of all self-identifying girls and women. Gender is a social construct and for centuries it’s held onto a binary (boys & girls) system. HGHW does not believe in the binary, but knows the deep history of systemic sexism and transphobia has uniquely harmed self-identifying girls and gender expansive folks. This is who we work with. As consistently learning intersectional feminists, we welcome and celebrate folks across all identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, religions, economic statuses and sexual orientations.
