About us

SheCanHeCan (formerly GenderHopes) was established in 2011 as a Monaco-based organisation.

A long-time advocate to end gender-based violence and discrimination, GenderHopes launched the first website www.monacosaysnotoviolence.org as well as a brochure that was distributed nationwide to inform and assist victims of domestic violence in Monaco.

Gilles Grosjean Nash  

Shortly before being involved with She Can He Can, Gilles had a conversation with a family member about the equality of opportunities for men and women, boys and girls in today’s world… and the answer he received was that this isn’t an issue any more, we’ve reached equality. 


However, despite the progresses of the last decades, Gilles is convinced that there is still a lot to be done to achieve the profound change in the society that is needed for true equality. That’s why he's so happy to help SCHC in its mission.

Jaeli, originally from New Jersey, is a student in the dual bachelors program between Sciences Po and Columbia University.


She is passionate about social justice and women's empowerment, and has worked with the refugee population in her community (through Welcome Home Jersey City) as well as in the United Nations, as a youth representative for the Foundation for Post Conflict Development.


She is excited to be a part of SCHC's mission, and to get involved in her Cote d'Azur community!

SheCanHeCan is a Monaco-based organisation that aims to inspire and support girls to take leadership roles. We encourage girls and boys to challenge deeply-held, life-limiting gender stereotypes and to realise their full potential, independent of their gender. SheCanHeCan also works to recognize the achievements and contributions of great female leaders throughout herstory.

By looking back, we can inspire the future.
