It’s no secret that girls around the world are neglected and devalued by society— just look at the facts above. But we cannot just stand idly by as the urgent problem persists! We must work to change the status quo.

This is what October 11th, the International Day of the Girl, as proclaimed by the UN is for. On this day, we see dynamic groups around the world (led by girls, of course!) highlight, discuss, celebrate, and ultimately advance girls’ lives around the world. 

The Day of the Girl is more than just a day; it’s a movement. It’s a revolution. (And did we mention that it’s 100% youth-led on every level??)

So what are you going to do on this October 11th? Change your profile picture to the Day of the Girl logo to show your solidarity? Tweet @ your legislator to demand he/she passes the Title IX Data Equity Bill? Stage a Girlcott of sexist entertainment? The possibilities are endless.

Day of the Girl is more about celebrating how kick-ass girls are (though it never hurts to be reminded). Day of the Girl is about these kick-ass girls making waves and demanding change.

How will you make change this October 11th?

Forever causing a ruckus,

The Day of the Girl-US Action Team
