“Sharing stories of our sisters”

Black Girls Around The World (BGATW) is an online platform which aims to share stories of Black girls across the world and their experiences navigating through life in their respective countries and cultures.

The website features essays and profiles on various Black girls across the globe, as they talk about their experiences with intersectionality, careers, dating, mental health and much much more.

BGATW is also running an ongoing series – ‘Black Girls Around The World REMEMBERED: A collection of profiles highlighting the Black girls around the world who are no longer with us due to police brutality and gender-based violence.

Our mission is to give a voice to Black girls from different cultures and countries, in a bid to unite our experiences, highlight our differences and shine a light on women who have long been ignored.
