The goal of Girlcott is to raise awareness about the challenges and issues women face today.  Ultimately, it is a girlcott (as opposed to “boycott”) of policies, attitudes and practices that allow gender injustice to continue.

Girlcott was launched in 2012 by the Charter Oak Cultural Center, YWCA Hartford Region, The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Women for Change at the University of Hartford, CT Humanities, the Women’s Center at Trinity College, the University of St. Joseph, the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, the Ethel Walker School, the University of Hartford’s Women’s Education and Leadership Fund, the Connecticut River Academy at Goodwin College and others. Hundreds of women of all ages and ethnicities participated.
