Wow, how cool is this?!? We learned that Oct. 11th was “International Day of the Girl”. For the fifth year in a row, the youth-led movement is being recognized (the United Nations declared October 11 as “day of the girl” in 2011). This youth-led movement fights for gender justice and youth rights, believing that girls are the experts on issues that affect girls. To learn more about Day of the Girl, visit www.dayofthegirl.org.
