This day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls’ face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights. This year, under the theme, “My voice, Our Equal Future”, let’s seize the opportunity to be inspired by what adolescent girls sees as the change they want, the solutions- big and small- they are leading and demanding across the globe.
As adolescent girls worldwide assert their power as change-makers, International Day of the Girl 2020 will focus on their demands to:
- Live free from gender-based violence, harmful practices, and HIV and AIDS
- Learn new skills towards the future they choose
- Lead as a generation of activists accelerating social change
