Day of the Girl

A girl should know her place and that place isanywhere she wants

It’s a universal truth: every girl and woman has been told to know their place. On the Day of the Girl we want girls around the world to know that their place is anywhere they want.

Here’s a few reasons why...

Take part in #TheGirlEffect

What did society, family, bosses tell you that you weresupposed todo? What did youchoose todo?

Share your supposed to / chose to story on your social channels. Tag one friend who inspires you to share theirs.

Why just one? Because when one girl finds her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. It creates a ripple effect. That’s #TheGirlEffect.

Start a conversation

Power. Choice. Control. Equality. What does it mean for you, for us, for girls?
