In honour of International Women's Week, which runs March 3-9, Voices for Women Sudbury Sexual Assault Centre will be visiting local high schools to spread a message of self-esteem to girls.

They'll be promoting the message “I am ... enough,” showing girls that being who they are is enough, and that they should love and respect themselves, and empower others.

“As leaders in wellness: mind, body and soul, we can change this detrimental mindset in our society that makes us think we cannot accomplish things, that we are not worthy of love, that we don't deserve something we want,” a press release from Voices for Women said.

Papers will be put up in the high schools, and the girls will be asked to decorate it with inspirational messages and drawings that communicate the campaign's message. They'll also receive free “I am ... enough” stickers.

The campaign will visit Marymount Academy March 3, Lively District Secondary School March 4, Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School March 5, and St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School March 6.
