This year marks the 10th annual celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child, calling for a retrospective on the progress made for girls' rights, listening to girls' continued demands for change, and a push for further accountability for girls' rights.

This year, in recognition of the existing and growing gaps in the fulfillment of girls' rights, including losses in girls' access to education during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in light of commitments made to girls for the Generation Equality Forum, our International Day of the Girl focus will be "IDG+10: Mind the Gap- Girls' Rights Now!" 

Girl activists and advocates will participate in a hybrid (in-person and virtual) town hall designed to deliver unscripted and authentic dialogue between policymakers, girl allies, and girl leaders working for the fulfillment of girls' rights. In a candid, girl-led conversation among girl activists and distinguished members of the UN community,  girls will share their perspectives and experiences and have a dialogue with policymakers around progress for girls' rights.
