International Girl’s Day honors the rights of girls and the specific troubles faced by girls all over the world. The goal of International Day of The Girl is to facilitate the empowerment of young girls everywhere. In fact, at the same time promoting for the triumph of their essential human rights; such as education and physical autonomy.
This day is a universal day of celebration affirmed by the United Nations; we sometimes refer it to as Girls’ Day and International Girls’ Day. The first International Day of the Girl Child took place on October 11, 2012. The study advocates more hopes for girls and raises awareness of gender inequality faced by girls globally based on their gender. This disparity concerns areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and bias security, violence against women. It also comprises forced marriage of a girl child. The celebration of the day also reflects the active emergence of girls and young women in evolution policy, set up, campaigning and research as a distinct cohort.
The Day of Girls has a theme every year. The 1st year theme was ending child marriage. The 2nd theme was setting up innovations for girls’ education. The third, in 2014, was about Empowering Teenage Girls: Ending the Abuse Cycle. The fourth theme, in 2015, had related to The Power of Teenage Girl: Vision for 2030. Also, the theme for 2016 was proclaiming Progress of Girls = Progress of Goals: What Counts for Girls. In fact, the theme for 2017 was about Empower of Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030.
In particular, the Forum for Action calls on the global community to:
- Eliminate many girls’ injustice.
- Remove derogatory attitudes and practises towards girls in cultural matters.
- Promoting and safeguarding girls’ rights and growing recognition of their needs and potential.
- Eliminate sexism in schooling, skills development and training against girls.
- Excluding health and nutrition prejudice against children.
- Wipe out the economic violence of child labour and safeguard young girls at work.
- Eradicate girls’ abuse.
- Promote girls’ understanding of social, economic and political life and participation.
- Strengthening the family’s role in enhancing girls’ status.
The theme of International Girl Day 2020 is about my voice, our fair future. This is a striking call to support the heritage of girls of the still-unfinished Beijing Agenda, their expertise in the challenges they face, especially for their sexual health and rights, and their limitless capacity as change-makers.
