What is Girls Driving for a Difference?

GDD Logo Designs_LogoGirls Driving for a Difference is a team of Stanford students using design thinking to empower middle-school girls across the United States to become leaders of social change, both within their local communities and beyond.

This Summer of 2015, the team will be driving in an RV across America, visiting all-women’s communities (specifically leadership and summer camps for middle school girls), and coaching design thinking and leadership workshops. These workshops will be designed to give girls the tools, inspiration, and creative confidence to discover their purpose, enact social change in their communities, and envision their own dreams for someday changing the world.

I'm surprised they prefer being called Girls to being called Women. 

Their targets are young girls though; their project is about empowering girls, so maybe that's why.  

Ah, got it. Like Girls Who Code.
