Plan International is supporting girls from across the globe who have written an open letter to the major social media companies, calling for an end to online abuse. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Online abuse causes real harm and silences girls' voices.⁠ During this pandemic, when a big chunk of our lives are happening online, girls more at risk than ever. We’re physically threatened, sexually harassed, body-shamed, and racially abused, especially when we speak our minds.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Girls, in all our diversity, need to know that when we're abused and threatened online, we can report it. That we will be listened to. That action will be taken, and that perpetrators will be held to account.⁠
