Hardy Girls Healthy Women


A Maine-based, research-driven nonprofit, Hardy Girls Healthy Women empowers girls with knowledge, critical thinking skills and a platform to drive social change since 2000. We’re about changing the culture, not fixing the girl. HGHW works with 1,200+ girls annually through year-round, statewide programs.

Hardy Girls takes girls seriously and puts the power in their hands to challenge a society that ignores their brilliance. We dare adult allies to join us in standing with girls.

Hardy Girls Healthy Women welcomes and celebrates the inclusivity of all self-identifying girls and women. This includes but is not limited to cis and trans girls and gender expansive folks across all identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, religions, economic statuses and sexual orientations.
