The 2023 Girls Speak Out will draw upon the IDG theme of "Invest in Girls' Rights: Our Leadership & Wellbeing" focusing on action for girls' rights. This begins with fulfilling, protecting, and respecting girls' rights. It demands trusting girls' leadership as equal partners, ensuring there is space for girls to be heard, to participate, and co-lead, and respecting their voices and perspectives and lived realities as decision-makers and as the leaders of today. This also requires investing in and supporting girls' health and wellbeing as well as their education and including girls in determining what their needs are while working in an intergenerational effort to meet those specific needs. In listening to Girl Advocates' perspectives and Girl Activists who are already making change, the overarching questions at this year's Girls' Speak Out will be: How are you taking action for girls' rights? How are you investing in, supporting, and working towards the realization of girls' rights?
