International Day of the Girl History
International Day of the Girl aims to recognize girls' rights and the unique challenges that they face around the world. Every day, young girls everywhere face challenges involving their rights, access to education, inequality, discrimination, domestic violence and child marriage. Gender inequality is so prevalent in the world that the United Nations introduced a Gender Inequality Index (GII) to measure gender disparity in countries.
International Day of the Girl is promoted by the United Nations and was initially declared in December 2011. Every year on December 19th, the world celebrates and empowers young girls to rise up and fight for equality, safety and their rights.
