International Day of the Girl Child

Nivedita S Nair - 21PYJO56

The International Day of the Girl Child is observed on October 11. It is a day dedicated to empowering girls and elevating their voices. This day is set aside to combat issues affecting young girls that are based on genders, such as child marriages, inadequate educational opportunities, violence and prejudice. The theme for this year is "Day of the Girl Child", which aims to honour numerous females in contrast to the roles boys play in many societies, where the male child has better access to opportunity and education just because he is a man.

International Day of the Girl Child was established as a part of the global NGO Plan International's "Because I am a Girl" campaign. Seventy countries around the world are served by the NGO Plan International. In 2007, it was the driving force behind the campaign that sought to raise awareness about the importance of fostering girls everywhere, but notably in impoverished nations where conditions are worse. An action plan to strengthen women's rights and protect young girls' futures was formulated during the 1995 World Conference on Women in Beijing. The resolution designating October 11, 2012, as the first day of the International Day of the Girl Child, which was primarily focused on the serious problem of child marriages, was successfully adopted by the U.N. General Assembly on December 19, 2011. The day is celebrated with a different theme every year.

Girls continue to suffer innumerable obstacles to their education that are neither addressed nor recognized, such as their physical and mental health and the safeguards required for a life free from abuse. But overcoming obstacles requires resilience, originality, courage and wisdom. The 600 million teenage girls worldwide have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to drive change in their communities and make them stronger for everyone—women, boys, and men—if given the tools and the chance. Thus, it is time for all of us to take responsibility, speak up for girls individually and collectively, and make investments in the future that value their agency, leadership, and potential.
