Annual Essay Contest
Harvard GlobalWE Essay Contest offers global student perspectives.
In 2015, Harvard GlobalWE, launched its annual essay contest at the Beaconhouse School in Islamabad, Pakistan. In 2016, we have expanded the contest to schools in Germany and Turkey, with the goal of providing inspiration and encouragement to students who engage in topics relating to global women's rights and freedoms. Our contest will allow us to build a library of student perspectives from around the world, inspiring others to learn about and help women and girls who face daily challenges which define their communities, but not their aspirations.
For our second annual Harvard GlobalWE Essay Contest, we invited students to respond to the question,
“What is the biggest challenge facing women and girls in your country today?”
GlobalWE received numerous submissions and selected Sadaf Tausif, Benedicta Anning, Elif Hamutcu, and Armanc Kesser's submissions as winning essays. Winners have received an award certificate and the book, in recognition. Their submissions are featured on our site. Please read the essays by clicking the links below:
