  • Action should be taken by the legal system to hold predators accountable. 

  • Adults should listen to the girl child instead of dismissing them. 

  • Girls should join peer support groups to surround themselves with empowering individuals that help nurture their dreams. 

  • Girls should be mentored closely to ensure that they have the support they need and access to positive influences in their lives.
