Explore Women Humanitarians

Are you curious about how people in other countries are like you yet different from you? Do you ever wonder what Egyptian girls thousands of years ago did for fun? Have you ever thought of living on a tropical island or in an igloo? Do you get the urge to comfort people, teach them, and make life better for them? If these kinds of ideas cross your mind, explore Women in Humanities.

Here you'll learn about women who have made a difference in the world. Some are teachers and religious leaders. Some work to ensure the civil rights of others. Some—philanthropists—collect or donate money to help people in need or to spread knowledge. Many women make a difference by taking on the most important job in the world—being a good mother.

Girls Explore® introduces you to some of these explorers in the humanities, such as Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts; Pearl Buck, American author who lived in and wrote about China; Rosa Parks, a leader in the Civil Rights Movement.
