#GrowingUpAGirl: 10 Times This Hashtag Got So Real
We don't really know how the hashtag #GrowingUpAGirl started, but when we read through the hashtag, things got a bit sad and frustrating. There are some that expressed the funny struggles of being a girl, but as you go over the other girls' tweets, the struggles of defying societies stereotypes has been expressed. Check out a few of the things we found here:
