Institutional sexism affects many.

It might not be obvious or overt discrimination, but gender inequality is very much alive and kicking.

No-one wants to live amidst insidious and toxic environments.

Welcome to a New Community!

Let's help the next generation of women to have a voice and to be uninhibited by stereotypes. Girls Who Climb Trees is about empowering young women to be brave, bold, and most of all, themselves.

It’s not about smashing glass ceilings, it’s about there being no ceiling.

It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.

Normal is not something to aspire to, it’s something to get away from.
