In 2011, the UN organized a group of young women to help advance goals related to gender equality, universal basic education and other human rights issues. As a result, October 11th officially became the International Day of the Girl, calling attention to the issues that girls face worldwide.
These harrowing facts are unique to girls: only 30% of girls in the world are enrolled in secondary education, one in seven girls in developing countries will be married before age 15 and more than half of all reported sexual assaults occur before a girl’s 18th birthday. The International Day of the Girl addresses these issues and works to better the lives of girls the world over.
Numerous events are taking place to commemorate this special day – even pop star Katy Perry is involved in getting the word out there! Spreading awareness and showing your support is easy! Social networking, calling your government official or simply educating yourself about the issues that girls around the globe face every day can add to the momentum.
Join the international conversation with WMM’s Special Collection, THE NEXT GENERATION: Young Women & Girls. This compelling list of titles explore many of the same concerns at the heart of The International Day of the Girl, like body image, education, youth & media and violence against women.
