International Day of the girl!!!! Give your girls voices so they can be up- standers.
International Day of the Girl child focuses the much needed attention on the necessity to address the challenges that girls face. This promotes girls' empowerment and their human rights.

Psychologist Lisa Damour wants girls to know that "their true value lies in their contents, not their containers." We need to teach girls how strong they are and give them their voices.
Read your daughters the stories and talk about making a difference! Teach them gender equity matters.
