Who runs the world? Girls! MTV’s “Girl Code” premiered on Tuesday, and it’s sure to bring the laughs as its cast of comediennes covers everything from boob size to boozing wise to why girls always go to the bathroom in groups. (We spend 40% of our time in line, 30% looking in the mirror, 20% gossiping, 9% crying, and 1% peeing…if we even pee at all.)
Humor aside, “Girl Code” is all about bringing girls together to raise each other up. Just because we’re chasing after the same three Jonas Brothers doesn’t mean we can’t be friends! Watch the trailer, then check out our list of awesome orgs that promote good “Girl Code.”
+ Mean Stinks
You know what stinks more than the boys’ locker room after gym class? The gossip going on in the girls’ locker room! Secret deodorant’s Mean Stinks campaign wants girls to “gang up for good.” Stop girl-on-girl bullying by excluding mean talk from your group of friends and by sticking up for girls everywhere — in the lunchroom, the locker room and the online chat room!
+ Delete Digital Drama
Ashley Benson’s “Pretty Little Liars” character knows all about digital drama. For years, she and her friends have been bullied through texts from the mysterious A. In real life, Ashley, Willow Smith, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner promote Delete Digital Drama — a Seventeen magazine campaign that encourages girls to stop digital drama simply by clicking ‘x.’ Sticks and stones may break my bones, but Tweets can be deleted!
+ She’s The First
Girls account for more than 50% of the world’s 143 million out-of-school youth, but She’s the First wants to change that! The org helps girls in the developing world graduate from high school — many are the first in their families to do so. Join their Run The World campaign to help raise funds to bridge the educational gap.
+ Girl Up
Girl Up is a United Nations campaign that brings American girls together to help the 600 million young women living in developing countries today. “Victorious” star Victoria Justice is all about the cause, and she even released a “Girl Up” music video!
