This YouTube Star is Calling for an End to This Hateful Trend

YouTube sensation (and MAKER) Lilly Singh,  better known as "IISuperwomanII" by her 6 million subscribers, is set on a mission to spread positivity online and in real life, particularly among women.

Singh's mission to end what she calls "girl-on-girl hate" was revealed in her latest video on her YouTube channel titled, "The #GirlLoveChallenge."

Singh's video begins with an explanation behind her project.

"The sad reality is that girl-on-girl hate is such a big issue in schools, at work, or on-line, and it never made any sense to me because as women, we know how awesome other women can be," she says.

The video features popular and other well-known YouTubers, who Singh also calls her "girlfriends," such as Lindsey Stirling and Kandee Johnson who speak about their experiences with girl-on-girl hate and advocating their support for Singh's viral campaign.

As if a video of accomplished and connected women advocating for safe spaces and meaningful change isn't commendable enough, every dollar made from each video view will be donated to the Malala Fund to support girls' education and women's global rights.

Currently, the video has more than 1.2 million views. Learn how you can join the #GirlLove challenge by watching the video below.
