Happy International Day of the Girl!

Happy International Day of the Girl!

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."
