October 11th marks International Day of the Girl!

Day of the Girl-US is an 100% youth-led movement fighting for gender justice and youth rights. Our work to dismantle patriarchy and fight for social justice is rooted in girl-led activism across the country, using October 11th as a day of national action. We are outraged by the neglect and devaluation of female-identifying youth. We are committed to examining these issues within an intersectional framework, the inclusion of girls’ voices in the movement for social justice, and grassroots activism – and thus we advocate, educate, and organize. Day of the Girl-US is the United States arm of the global Day of the Girl movement, beginning in 2011 (read more about our history). (via Day of the Girl)

“Global Goals” by the year 2030: ending child marriage, putting all girls in school, ending the AIDS epidemic and ending all forms of violence toward girls.

In honor of the day, Beyonce, released an exclusive video clip (produced by Beyoncé and Salma Hayek’s Chime for Change initiative and The Global Goals) featuring an international group of talented young girls lip syncing and dancing to her song, “Freedom”. All throughout the video flashed alarming statistics…

71% of human trafficking victims are girls, while 130 million girls are out of school.
