International Day of the Girl was first recognized in 2011, when the United Nations general assembly voted to set aside Oct. 11 as a day to honor girls and work to improve their lives. It's a day for sharing inspiration and spreading awareness. This year's celebration centers on the theme "Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls."
