ONE organization launches #WithStrongGirls to help women and girls in poverty

ONE, an organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty, wants you to stand in solidarity with the girls and women in the poorest countries by sharing your #Strengthie using the hashtag #WithStrongGirls and sign the #PovertyisSexist petition calling on world leaders to act on behalf of poor women and girls around the world.

The petition, titled "Poverty is Sexist" calls on the world's leaders: "I'm counting on you to take real action that leads to real change — prioritizing the countries and people that need it the most."

Go sign the petition and then share your own #Strengthie tagged with #WithStrongGirls with your family and friends to raise awareness and change the futures of women and girls in the most impoverished countries.

When you do, you'll be in some pretty amazing company.
