On Saturday, March 16th, the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry will host the second annual Rebel Girls Celebration to coincide with Women’s History Month. Inspired by the book “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls,” this event will feature notable women in history, and some of Charleston’s own inspiring women. Children will meet and participate in activities with each “Rebel Girl” motivating them to see themselves as capable, creative and full of promise.
“At the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry, we strive to host special events that engage young children’s potential by sparking their imagination and stimulating their curiosity,” Nichole Myles, executive director of the museum, said. “This event will not only be fun for children, but it will inspire them with stories of extraordinary women from all over the globe.”
During the event, children will interact with inspiring women of the past like Anne Bonny, Madame CJ Walker, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Corrie Ten Boom, Joan Beauchamp Procter, Valerie Thomas, Gerty Cori and Sonia Sotomayor, who will all be portrayed by actors. Children will also meet and interact with local women who are successful in their industries.
