KUSA - The Day of the Girl is a response to an urgent problem facing our world today: the neglect and devaluation of girls around the world.
On Oct. 11 of every year, we see dynamic groups across the world (led by girls, of course) acting to highlight, discuss, celebrate and ultimately advance girls' lives and opportunities across the globe. When girls come together to talk about what really matters to us, we can teach ourselves and other people - adults, boys, and other girls all across the world - new ways of thinking about gender issues, which will help us take action to change the status quo.
October 11 is not just a day; it's a movement.
