International Day of the Girl/11 Days of Action!

3The Working Group on Girls is proud to sponsor the 11 Days of Action and the International Day of the Girl Speak Out at the United Nations. The Day of the Girl (IDG) is celebrated on October 11th, and the days leading up to it are used as a social media campaign to raise awareness about the issues girls face around the world. On twitter, facebook, and all social media you can follow the discussion and join in! Use the hashtags #seeus #hearus and #joinus.

UNANIMA is a member of the Working Group on Girls and is sponsoring Day 2 of the 11 Days of Action on October 2nd! We’ll be leading the discussion and talking about how the media—especially pop songs—degrades girls and women.  We’ll rewrite the lyrics to be empowering!

On October 9th the IDG Speak Out will take place at the United Nations. Girls are taking over the UN and writing their own resolutions and agendas for development! You can watch the celebration online at
