October 11th is International Day Of The Girl. It’s a day when we not only celebrate the progress that has been made toward equal rights for women, but a day where we are reminded of the continued work ahead.
According to the UN,
The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
This year’s theme is GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable and aims to promote female empowerment by encouraging young girls and women to speak up and speak out.
