Inspiring Girls International has launched a new video hub today that will raise the aspirations of girls worldwide by showcasing inspirational female role models. The Inspiring Girls Video Hub features interviews with women who have excelled in a diverse range of industries, from Prime Ministers to oceanographers.

‘Trying to make sure that girls feel just as empowered as boys is something that concerns everybody,’ founder Miriam Gonzales Durántez told Lorraine Kelly. She explained that the new platform will break barriers by giving any girl with internet access the opportunity to hear female leaders speak.

Inspiring Girls International is aimed at girls aged 10-15, and hopes to connect them with female role models from a ‘variety of careers and options in life’. Hoping to help them aim higher than they may have been taught to, the charity is already working in 13 countries and helps thousands of girls.

‘Wherever we go, whether a wealthy nation or a poor one, we keep finding girls who start dropping school subjects (mostly maths and science) and sports ... because they think they are “not for girls”’, Gonzales wrote in The Telegraph yesterday. Now however, with the help of her organisation, she hopes to change that by giving young girls the confidence to continue on with subjects they love regardless of societal norms.

The Hub was launched at the charity's Global Summit, which featured interviews conducted by local schoolgirls of historian and general number-one-hun Dame Mary Beard and UNICEF ambassador Muzoon Almellehan. There were also contributions from Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and a presentation from Miriam Gonzales Durántez.
