In 2011, the United Nations declared October 11 International Day of the Girl Child. The resolution states that: “Empowerment of and investment in girls are key in breaking the cycle of discrimination and violence, and in promoting and protecting the full and effective enjoyment of their human rights.”
Girls face discrimination across cultures, borders and disciplines.
