Reviving Ophelia

Reviving Ophelia is an activity for BSM girls in grades 9-12. The group will get together twice a month to talk about the issues that girls struggle with while in high school – self esteem, body image, relationships, anxiety, stress, etc. We also hope to make girls aware of issues women have faced in the past, and issues women still face today. For example, we help publicize Women’s History Month (March) each year. Reviving Ophelia is also about having fun and getting to know other girls. The group is different each year, and activities we do are planned at the beginning of the year by the group.

Why is it called Reviving Ophelia? In the Shakespearean play Hamlet, we see Ophelia as a girlfriend, daughter and sister, but never as a young woman true to herself. Again and again, the men in her life shape who she is and what she will be. In Reviving Ophelia, our goal is to turn "Ophelia" upside down, and avoid the tragic situations that happen to so many girls. We want to help girls develop strong, supportive
relationships and skills that will help them become their best selves. After all, it takes a girl to
change the world!
