Sensational September is Here!
avatar-GirlsSpkOut

Let’s make this September Sensational! How?

Try answering these two questions:
1. What is one thing you can do this month that will make your world a better place?
2. What is one thing girls can do together to make our world a better place?

Tell us your first name, age and country you live in. Then we’ll get to see how we much we think alike, differently and maybe even come up with some ideas for real change. Cool, huh?

Think about it. Tell us what you think. And let’s share these ideas with each other! By the end of the month, we’ll have a huge list of things we can do to Change Our World for the better. Cannot wait to hear your ideas! We’ll share them with our friends at the Day of the Girl Summit  and get ready for the coolest day of the year for girls: The International Day of the Girl, and the Girls Speak Out at the United Nations, on October 11, 2018.

Tell Us! We Need To Hear from YOU by September 1!!!

On October 11, 2017, we will celebrate the 6th annual International Day of the Girl (IDG), and the 5th annual Girls Speak Out event at the United Nations.

It’s a huge year for girls around the world. That’s why we need YOU!

Think about girls you know and girls around the world and how they are overcoming the unique challenges they face just because they are girls. Then think about what it’s like where you live. Do or girls like you face unfairness just because you are a girl?  How do you deal with it? How do you overcome it?

Then, tell us a story about it. How did you – or a girl you know where you live – handle something unfair, unjust or even experienced a crisis, just because she is a girl.

There are so many unusual challenges girls have to deal with today, from injustice in society, their community and in the workplace, to unfairness in opportunities in education, or gender violence, sexism, war, climate change, and many others. There’s no right or wrong answer here. What’s important is how you define “crisis” or “injustice” and how you or a girl you know dealt with it.

We want to hear YOUR story. Your story will inspire others. Your story is like the story of millions of girls around the world who will be empowered by hearing from you. So tell us your story!

What is IDG
IDG is our day to celebrate girls everywhere – to celebrate our power, our voices, and our unique place in this world. Help us showcase the creative and collective voice of girls everywhere. The leaders of today need to hear from you. Let’s inspire everyone with our stories of girl power — in art, pictures, poetry, songs, video — to showcase the unique role girls play in our world. No girl is alone. And we are stronger when we raise our voices together. That’s why we need your voice!
