Mrs. Carey's Honors Geometry classes have been working for months on a quilting project to donate to the NICU at MUSC Children’s Hospital. Students designed, created a materials list, measured, cut, and sewed their quilts independently.

These quilts will give the babies a special place to lay (or shield their sensitive eyes from the harsh lights.) They will also give the families a much needed boost that someone is thinking of them during this difficult time. #ahgirlsmakeadifference #girlswiththewill

Earth Day speaks to a number of Ashley Hall Hallmarks - compassionate and worldly to name a few. Here's how our girls are celebrating the day:

A team of 17 Jenkins Hall 9th graders is partnering with Water Missions International in the pilot year competition of the Global Change Challenge, an annual competition between teams of middle and high school students to solve global problems. They have produced a short video highlighting their proposed solution for solving the global water crisis. Check out the video in the link below.

But we need you to take one more step. The Ashley Hall team is competing for cash prizes with teams using their winnings to purchase technology for student use. This is a win-win initiative. Please make a donation as a way to inspire and support the world-changing efforts of these future leaders. To donate go to: http://www.globalchangechallenge.org/#!donate/c1avz
All donations need to be made by 7:00pm pm April 22.

To learn more about the Global Change Challenge, go to www.globalchallenge.org.

The 7th grade recently attended the South Carolina YMCA’s Model UN Convention in Black Mountain, North Carolina, where students engaged in debate with over 200 participants from all over the state to discuss and attempt to resolve worldwide dilemmas with diplomacy and decorum.

Thanks to much hard work and the guidance of Geography instructors Mary Webb and Aubrey Groves, this group came home with many individual honors and ultimately earned the distinction of being Premier Delegation, a title bestowed upon the group that, as a whole, best embodies the mission of Model United Nations at the conference.

There are ten words every girl should learn according to writer Soraya Chemaly -- not vocabulary terms, but critical phrases they can use when their contributions to a discussion are discounted or interrupted. Practicing the phrases such as “Stop interrupting me," “I just said that," and "No explanation needed" will help girls speak them in real life -- and teach both boys and girls that it’s not socially acceptable to interrupt or ignore a female voice. Chemaly points out that, “Globally, childhood politeness lessons are gender asymmetrical... we generally teach girls subservient habits and boys to exercise dominance.” As a result, boys and men are more prone to interrupt or talk over another person -- and to firmly prevent someone from interrupting or talking over them -- while girls and women are more prone not to interrupt, and to give way to someone who interrupts them. “It starts in childhood and never ends," she continues. "Parents interrupt girls twice as often and hold them to stricter politeness norms. Teachers engage boys, who correctly see disruptive speech as a marker of dominant masculinity, more often and more dynamically than girls.” This continues into adulthood where "women’s speech is granted less authority." Research found that in male-dominated problem solving groups such as boards, committees, and legislatures, men speak 75% more than women, which is why researchers summed up, ‘Having a seat at the table is not the same as having a voice.’” This trend continues into television and film where male actors, on average, have significantly longer speaking roles than their female counterparts. This disparity even exists on on social media, Chemaly observes, where research has found that men are retweeted on Twitter at twice the rate of women. Chemaly also highlights another common problem: “A woman, speaking clearly and out loud, can say something that no one appears to hear, only to have a man repeat it minutes, maybe seconds later, to accolades and group discussion.” This may not happen consciously, but Chemaly points out that makes it easier to underestimate “how broadly consequential the impact can be. [And w]hen you add race and class to the equation the incidence of this marginalization is even higher.” But women and girls can reclaim their voices by standing up and refusing to allow even unconscious sexism in the flow of discussion. So when, Chemaly says, people ask her “what to teach girls or what they themselves can do,” she says, “practice these words, every day: ‘Stop interrupting me,’ 'I just said that,’ and ‘No explanation needed.’ It will do both boys and girls a world of good.” Have you personally experienced this or seen girls’ or women’s voices crowded out or gone unheard in groups? To the women in our community, how do you make your voice heard in these situations? To read Chemaly’s article on gender, language, and behavior on HuffPost, visit http://huff.to/1qllYLo An excellent book to help girls aged 8 to 12 develop confidence in social situations is the “Smart Girl’s Guide to Knowing What To Say” -- it features over 200 sample conversations covering a huge range of social situations at http://www.amightygirl.com/a-smart-girl-s-guide-to-knowing-what-to-say For a helpful book for parents that explores this issue in depth and offers practical strategies to foster girls' assertiveness, resilience, and integrity, check out "The Curse of the Good Girl: Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence" at http://www.amightygirl.com/the-curse-of-the-good-girl For stories of both real-life and fictional girls and women confronting gender discrimination and prejudice in a multitude of forms, visit our "Gender Discrimination" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/social-issues/prejudice-discrimination?cat=69 And, to inspire your children with stories that show girls and women taking initiative -- in ways great and small -- visit our "Initiative & Leadership" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/personal-development/values?cat=322

"I’ve attended Ashley Hall since I was two years old, and I’ve never once thought about leaving. I feel surrounded by devoted teachers and fellow students that inspire and push me to excel. My self confidence has grown through experiences like our Harkness discussion groups. There’s never been peer pressure or judgment. I can just be myself." -Bailey Horn '15, Member of the Student Loyalty Fund Committee

Bailey is a great reminder of the impact of the Loyalty Fund on our student body. Don't forget Loyalty Fund Week is happening now!

This is NOT a field trip. It is NOT a Caribbean vacation. It is a ten-day adventure fueled by salt water, sweat, tears and the sea. It is calloused palms, knuckles whitened by the grip of raising the sails. It is awakening to a flashlight shining in your eyes, leaving your bunk at 4:00am willingly to ensure the ship is running smoothly as your shipmates sleep soundly. It is laughing as a 15 foot wave crashes down on you, soaking your last set of dry clothes. It is the dry eyes of bow watches and the perpetual duties of cleaning and boat checks. It is picking up the slack where needed and never complaining, and abiding by the #1 rule: Ship, Shipmates, Self. This is NOT for the faint of heart.

It was the most important trip of my life. I learned about who I am, who I want to be, and what I want from life. I thank you for this opportunity and I implore you to give this gift to future Ashley Hall girls. -Maria Faulstich, '16
