“I would have girls regard themselves not as adjectives but nouns, not mere appendages made to qualify somebody else, but independent, responsible workers in carrying forward the grand eternal plans in the redemption of mankind.” -Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 1880
International Day of the Girl is celebrated every October 11. The observance was established by the United Nations to raise awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide in areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, and medical care, and to support protection of girls from discrimination, domestic violence and child marriage. The day also celebrates the emergence of girls and young women as advocates for their own futures.
