GIRL TALK Day is Canada’s largest event entirely dedicated to girl empowerment, and it’s coming to Toronto next month.

On Wednesday, June 5, over 1,200 girls from across Southern Ontario, ranging from 11 to 18, will gather at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto. The event will offer a pep rally filled with motivational speakers, musical performances, and panel sessions.

Now in its seventh year, GIRL TALK Day has impacted over 10,000 girls, and it continues to spark inspiration and confidence in those who attend.

The organization provides programs, resources, life-changing experience and a support network that give girls the tools they need to overcome personal challenges to make their mark in the world.

Zeppieri’s book, She Rises: Uplifting Words for Anxious Girls, speaks to challenges that girls and women experience including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and low self-esteem.

If girl power interests you, this read is one to get your hands on. From each copy sold, $1 will be donated to CAMH to help provide resources for individuals struggling with mental health and addiction.
