International Day of the Girl 2015
The 3nd Annual Girls Speak Out will celebrate the International Day of the Girl 2015 with a creative mixture of featured activist monologues, performance, music, song, and video developed by girls around the world. The event titled “Girls Speak Out: The Takeover” imagines the year is 2065, teenage girls have taken over the United Nations, and girl leaders are meeting at the UN to vote on several issues of concern. In this 60-minute session, performers, girl activists, and audience members participate in an engaging theater production that addresses 6 thematic topic areas: education, gender equality, health and sanitation, climate change, violence and girl’s leadership. Audience members (both at the UN and virtually) will participate in the Girls Speak Out through online and live-discussion, voting on key resolutions, and other IDG 2015 activities.
In partnership with the Government of Canada, Peru & Turkey at the
United Nations, the Working Group on Girls will manage the event.
