I hope you are all well 🙂
Today I would like to tell you about a very important campaign that has started today. On the 11th of October 2014 it will be the United Nations International Day of the Girl Child, a day which promotes girls’ human rights, highlights gender inequalities that remain between girls and boys and addresses the various forms of discrimination and abuse suffered by girls around the world.
Latimer and Plan International have teamed up with leading female YouTubers, Vloggers, film directors and creatives to give a fresh insight into what it means to be a girl across the globe. From the UK, to Japan, Brazil and beyond we’re bringing the harsh realities that still prevent 1 in 5 girls having access to education into the world’s spotlight.
Whether from poverty, violence or discrimination we’re saying enough is enough! So let’s get a global conversation started using the hashtag #itsagirlthing to demand the attention of world leaders, and campaign for change in the international community. Let’s bring an end to global gender inequality in education – will you join us?
I have been asked to support the campaign through my YouTube channel and social media and I’m very glad to do it. I hope you will help me spread the word!
