Abstract:

Current rhetoric on social movements indicates that activist projects have become institutionalized and shaped by professionalism (Meyer & Tarrow, 1998). Have structured political interest groups shaped protest and political activism? If so, what has happen to girls grassroots activism for girls? This paper will look at the social movements, protests, and activism of young women and girls today in the Americas to argue that grassroots activism is kept alive and well when they add their own passionate voices to counter conservative political thought. Work from Rebel Girls: Young Activism and Social Change Across the Americas, Leading the Way: Young Women’s Activism for Social Change, and Do It Anyway: The New Generation of Activists will be incorporated into this paper to show that young women and girls are still “screaming like a girl” to get their voices, thoughts, beliefs, hopes, and dreams out through protest and activist projects to influence social change
