Girls Incorporated and Girls Inc. of NW Oregon is a leading advocacy organization dedicated to extending girls’ voices, issues, and concerns to policy makers, corporations, and the media.
The Girls’ Bill of Rights serves as the foundation for all of our advocacy efforts. These rights shape our responses to the difficult social issues facing girls, and serve as a powerful platform for empowering girls.

- Host a Miss Representation Workshop – Girls Inc. of NW Oregon is licensed to provide educational programming around the award-winning documentary film Miss Representation. The film focuses on the impact the media has on how girls look at their own leadership potential, and the lack of females in leadership positions across the public and private sectors. Please contact us to schedule a Miss Representation workshop.
