Girls take over Yonge and Dundas Square

Every girl has a story. Such was the message of the first celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child held at Yonge and Dundas Square yesterday. For Crystal Gao, her interest in women’s rights and girl’s issues started when she was in high school.
“I found that middle school was really a breeding ground for negative female behaviour. A lot of gossip a lot of body bashing, a lot of slut shaming,” Gao says.
