All girls deserve access, agency, and power.


If you believe that, you belong here. We have the inspiration you’ve been waiting for, in the company of changemakers you’ve been wishing to meet. We get you on your feet, interacting with solutions to global gender inequality (and dancing, too). You’ll leave with actionable ways to advocate for girls year round.



The Birthday Bash is major. It underwrites our operating needs for the year. While funds are unrestricted to give STF control in achieving stronger outcomes, each ticket is equivalent to the average cost of providing 3 girls with a trained mentor and school supplies for a year.

Reserve your ticket now to join 500 culture-shapers, change-makers and luminaries who share a simple belief: A girl with an education is unstoppable.

STF 10 - About.png

She’s the First (STF) fights gender inequality through education


She’s the First reaches more than 7,200 young women who are first-generation high school students in East and West Africa, South Asia, and Latin America.

Since 2009, we’ve partnered with community-led organizations in those countries to ensure that girls can access schooling, mentorship, and leadership training. Across the U.S. and in 9 other countries, STF also trains student ambassadors on 200+ high school and college campuses to be global leaders.

STF is a featured member of Michelle Obama’s Girls Opportunity Alliance, a proud recipient of a DVF Award from Diane von Furstenberg, and has been covered by The Today Show, Forbes, Fast Company, Teen Vogue, and Glamour, among others.
