Nearly 300 Girls Attend Empowerment Conference

NECN - December 7, 2016


Girl power was the message behind a female empowerment conference Wednesday afternoon in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Hosted by the Middlesex district attorney's office, nearly 300 girls heard messages of strength, resiliency and shattering the glass ceiling, including stories from our own Ally Donnelly, who was one of the featured speakers.

DA Marian Ryan says it's critical to reach girls early.

"We like to start at this stage when girls are thinking about who they want to be, how they're going to change the world, and we really want to talk about developing that resiliency they need and growing into the leaders that they are," Ryan said.
