ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL
In 2011 the UN declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It's a day on which activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance girls' rights and opportunities. October 11 is not just a day; it's a movement. A worldwide revolution. We want to be seen as equals, in the eyes of others and in our own eyes.
