Young women find their power at Fremantle PCYC

Published: March 30, 2022 7:52am

‘We are Womxn’ have been delivering workshops to young women participating in the safeSISTAS program at Fremantle PCYC, helping them to build self-confidence through educational workshops and honest conversations.

PCYC’s safeSISTAS program allows girls to come together to have fun, make friends, and create relationships with female role models in their community.

The We are Womxn workshops are designed for young women by young women. They provide a safe space to ask tough questions, de-stigmatise ‘taboo’ topics such as sexual health, female hygiene, relationships and other challenging conversations.

As well as the opportunity to ask questions, the sessions have provided an opportunity for girls to learn how to handle themselves in challenging situations, make safe decisions and build self-respect as they transition to adulthood.
