Here is the Rights Guide for Girls and Youth with Creative Genders. It aims to support young people in learning about their basic rights, from a feminist and intersectional perspective.
The Rights Guide is free. It focuses on practices that promote equality in ways that are youth friendly. It contains writing spaces, quizzes, and “comics you’re the hero” that enliven and support reading.
The guide is filled with cartoons and illustrations, most of which are inspired by the experiences of young people who attend the Girls’ Centre’s youth activities.
