Tala Takes a Stand Against Gender Inequality

Tala Story - Jordan - Web Hero

Tala lives in the Al Khaldiah, Jordan. She and other girls there struggle daily against the reality that they don't have the same rights and opportunities as boys.

While Tala was expected to stay at home to do housework, the boys her age were out playing, learning, and discovering who they wanted to be.

Tala wanted to challenge these norms, and have all the same opportunities the boys had. This is her story.
