There are tough topics around the world. It's a harsh place to be a girl in many instances. It's natural for parents to want to protect their children and keep them sheltered. That said, across the board, the girls who are a part of MGA say they feel safer knowing what's happening and that it can even happen in the US. It makes them more aware so they can protect themselves. They are hearing things every day, we would rather they heard the truth in a safe forum where the message is shaped so they feel safe, aware, and protected from harm than to not know about the issue and that it could happen to them as well. Knowledge gives them a feeling of power which makes them safer. We have yet to run into a girl who regretted learning about what girls her age are going through, how they can keep it from happening to them, and how they can help.
