International Day of the Girl: How to get involved

International Day of the Girl

Get ready for 11th October as we celebrate International Day of the Girl

What is it?

International Day of the Girl is a UN initiative set up to promote the rights of girls around the world. Taking place every year on 11thOctober, it aims to highlight the realities of life as a girl across the globe and the challenges they face with regards to education, healthcare, child marriage, equal opportunity and sexual violence.

While not every girl in the world will face all of these challenges, but almost every girl will encounter at least one of them, which is why Day of the Girl is so important.

So what does Day of the Girl actually do?

Despite half the population being female, women experience discrimination on a daily basis due to gender inequality. Feeling it the most are the 1.1 billion girls in the world.

One in three girls in developing countries get married before the age of 18, which usually means that they miss out on education, a career and are more vulnerable to physical and sexual violence.

But by stopping this, it won’t only help girls but families and communities too. This year’s theme is Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress – a theme designed to highlight the fact that what is good for girls is also good for driving progress across society and ending poverty.
