International Day of the Girl 2020 - Girls Speak Out
9 Oct 2020 -  This year’s celebration of the International Day of the Girl (IDG) Child demands a new approach and vision for building connection and community across unprecedented changes in our global ecosystem. As the COVID-19 pandemic makes obvious widespread gender, economic, and racial inequalities, we, as a global community, must come together to demand a more just and equitable world for girls. One that rejects the practice of demeaning, dehumanizing, and denying girls from marginalized groups their human dignity and rights, and one which takes actionable steps to repair and redress the injustices which disproportionately impact minorized peoples the world over. On this 8th annual marking of IDG, our theme is: “Be Bold. Building Equity for Girls.”
