Malala and the International Day of the Girl

Last Friday was the International Day of the Girl. On December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a Resolution to declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

There are several things we can do to help spread the word and contribute to the fight for girls’ rights.

For example, we can support Malala! Do you remember her? She’s been in the news lately, because she has received a very important award, EU Human Rights Price. Her book, I am Malala, just came out and she’s just amazingly inspiring in general!  Tweet #IamMalala and make her famous!
