Today is International Day of the Girl, and as a Sista.zone reader and practitioner of board-sports you are very lucky to be blessed with your freedom. So please take a moment to think of those who are not and look into supporting one of the causes proposed by the campaign.
Every day girls around the world are fighting for their freedom. This International Day of the Girl – join them and raise your voice:
1. Share the film and tell us what #FreedomForGirls means to you
2. Take action at http://www.globalgoals.org/dayofthegirl
In 2015 when leaders signed up to the UN Sustainable Development Goals – the Global Goals – they made a promise – to empower all girls. There has been progress but we need to keep up the pressure.
If we work together we can make sure world leaders deliver and every girl grows up healthy, safe, empowered and able to fulfil her dreams.
This new film from director MJ Delaney featuring ‘Freedom’ by Beyoncé, calls for action on some of the biggest challenges girls face like access to education, child marriage and the threat of violence´ Last year we asked you to share #WhatIReallyReallyWant for girls and women – this year we want you to raise your voice for freedom. This can’t wait – we need action now if we are to achieve the Global Goals and equality for all girls.
