Nowadays there are more and more cases of teenage girls negatively affected by social media, and LOG OFF has noticed that although there has been an increase in dialogue about the problems brought about by social media, there's a lack of spaces to discuss its impact on young women. This is why LOG OFF decided to create its own Female Initiative. As everything in life, including social media, has two sides, LOG OFF's Female Initiative seeks to help girls and young women to have a better relationship with social media, decreasing its negative impact, and use it as a tool in their favor, increasing its positive impact.

 

With 5 main themes (mental health, body image, cyberbullying, sexual harassment and female empowerment) the initiative wants to let all girls and women know that they are not alone in this hyper-connected world. Join today and contribute to the cause!
