Hmm... do you think girls and boys are equal?

Feminism. Nowadays, a lot of people think it’s unnecessary, that one of its main goals—gender equality—has been accomplished, so what’s the point of dragging out that tired movement again? And yet…


Women still earn less than men do for equal work


Only 30 percent of girls in the world are enrolled in secondary schools. In the next two years, women will make up nearly two-thirds of the world’s illiterate adult population.


Women hold less than 16 percent of top leadership positions in Fortune 500 countries and about 20 percent of the seats in the U.S. Congress


1 in 5 high school girls has been abused by a date and more than half of all rapes of women happen to girls younger than 18


Something about that doesn’t seem quite equal to us. Enter the International Day of the Girl.

Today, Oct. 11, has been established by the United Nations to support the a resolution made last year: “To help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.”


Three cheers for that!


Are you ready to join the movement? Leave us a comment telling us why YOU think the International Day of the Girl is a great idea, and what you’re going to do to make sure that you, your friends and all the girls who come after you have equal opportunities to real the world in the future.
