Today is the U.N. International Day of the Girl Child

It’s International Day of the Girl Child- a day to bring attention to girls’ rights and the challenges that they face around the world.

2019 Theme — GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable

“We need to uphold the equal rights, voices and influence of girls in our families, communities and nations. Girls can be powerful agents of change, and nothing should keep them from participating fully in all areas of life.” — UN Secretary-General António Guterres

International Day of the Girl Child was set up by the United Nations – or UN as it’s often called – a worldwide organisation that brings countries together to talk about world issues. Find out more about this day here.
