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.
