SHE CAN DO ANYTHING: 11 October -International Day of the Girl Child 2018

International Day of Girls is an international observance day declared by the United Nations; it is also called the Day of Girls and the International Day of Girls. October 11, 2012, was the first Day of Girls. The observation supports more opportunity for Girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by Girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women and unfree child marriage.[1] The celebration of the day also “reflects the successful emergence of Girls and young women as a distinct cohort in development policy, programming, campaigning and research.”
