International Day of the Girl is right around the corner; it is October 11th. We wanted to draw your attention to the date a little early so you can get involved.
International Day of the Girl celebrates girls everywhere in the world. Women and girls are often at a disadvantage due to discrimination, violence, and lack of equal opportunity. Back in 2016, we wrote a blog on the day along with some interesting facts if you would like to read more.
This blog is focused on how you can get involved today. October 11th is the 5th annual Girls Speak Out event at the United Nations in New York City. It will feature a diverse array of bold, funny, sensitive, and powerful everyday stores from girls about empowerment. I found this event while surfing the web and thought it would be fun to share it with you. Here is a link to the website we found sharing information on the event.
Day of the Girl also has an 11 Days of Action plan that involves sharing your story. While we are joining in mid-stream, it is a fun activity to participate in and follow along. Here is the link so you can take a look and get involved.
Make this day and every day The Day Of The Girl!
