#RewritingTheCode

 #RewritingTheCode

We want to change the embedded code that still exists in lots of places that prevents many girls and women from succeeding and leading.

Every girl deserves the opportunity to become all that they can be and to have that code rewritten. We want to hear from teachers, businesses and community campaigners, but most of all anyone interested in shaping the future for a generation of girls and young women.

Here’s how you can support the campaign and join the global conversation:

Take a picture of yourself using your hands to create the “<” and “>” characters on a keyboard - these symbols are used in the code for building websites. We’re using them to represent the hidden language and text beneath the surface of the world around us that shapes what we see and experience

In your post, tell us your code - the positive word or phrase that you want to see introduced - and why you’ve chosen it. If you’re feeling creative, you can write the words over your picture, Snapchat / Instagram Stories-style.

Share a picture of positive <code>
