Respect - more than just a word.

About Rosie

Rosie is a space for girls to connect with the best of the web, helping them to navigate life’s tricky situations. Rosie has a range of tips, links and videos all centred around a theme of respect – for body & mind, work & study, relationships,  and the world we live in.

We are driven by the belief that young people have the courage and resilience to change our world for the better.

Meet Team Rosie
Rosie has been crafted by project workers Georgie and Ally, with the assistance of expert staff, volunteers and of course, teenage girls. Find out more.

Why Rosie?
We are inspired by the iconic Rosie the Riveter image which represented all the women that went to work in factories during World War II in the USA. Traditionally women were not allowed to work in such roles, if at all. These women paved the way for future generations to enter the workforce in whatever field they chose. The image has become a symbol of women’s empowerment globally, proving that women can achieve anything they set their minds to!
