Gender Equality and Teenage Girls

gender inequalityGender equality is a human right, yet discrimination against females persists, so teenage girls must become educated in order to utilize gender equality as an indispensable tool for advancing development.  Re-Creation Retreat advocates the protection of adolescent rights and helps troubled girls meet their important needs and expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.  Call (385) 414-8865 to learn more.

Re-Creation Retreat promotes equal rights of teenage girls to support their full participation in political, social, and economic development within their communities.  No one should be judged at a different and unfair standard due to their gender.  Gender equality stands for a substantive vision to better the world; governmental systems, cultural beliefs, institutions, and power relations have devalued women since the dawn of time, but with the gender equality movement there is the possibility of more freedom in all areas of life.


How does Gender Equality Affect Teenage Girls?

Recognizing oppression is the first step in realizing how many systems subjugate not only gender, but race, class, sexuality, religion, and other oftentimes uncontrollable aspects that composite one’s being.  At Re-Creation Retreat, the positive peer culture, community-based living, and values-oriented life coaching help teenage girls build strong interpersonal skills and leadership abilities, which will be essential qualities that contribute to their personal success in the future.  Learning about gender equality prepares young women for the inexplicable occurrence that are likely to pop up now and then like unfairness in the work place, repressive gender roles in relationships, or even more globally-minded subjects like women’s rights in foreign countries.  Perhaps gender equality could even incite a passion for activism.

Gender equality gives teenage girls an idea of what they are capable of and gives them the strength to be who they are in the face of adversity.  Knowing your rights as a human being brings an awareness that forms a connection with the human condition, bridging the gap between ideology and reality.  Teenage girls are going to be ushering in the new generations, so it is important to instill moralistic values that can span the ages.
