Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) is an intergenerational organization committed to the physical, psychological, social, and economic development of girls and women. Through education, organizing and physical fitness, GGE encourages communities to remove barriers and create opportunities for girls and women to live self-determined lives.

GGE achieves its mission through organizing in schools and in communities throughout New York City with programming such as the Urban Leadership Academy and Sisters in Strength, both utilizing evidence based youth development and social justice models.

GGE utilizes a two-pronged approach of community organizing and service provision, mobilizing 600 NYC boys and girls ages 8-19, as well as women and men under Title IX of the Education Amendment and its ten points, to work collectively toward systemic change. Resources are available on the website.
