History of International Day of the Girl Child

In 1995 at the World Conference on Women in Beijing countries unanimously adopted the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action – the most progressive blueprint ever for advancing the rights of not only women but girls. The Beijing Declaration is the first to specifically call out girls’ rights.

The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights. The first International Day of the Girl Child was observed on October 11, 2012, and its theme at that time was "Ending Child Marriage".

This year, under the theme, “My voice, our equal future”, let’s seize the opportunity to reimagine a better world inspired by adolescent girls – energized and recognized, counted and invested in.

Today, these movements have expanded. They are being organized by and for adolescent girls, and tackling issues like child marriage, education inequality, gender-based violence, climate change, self-esteem, and girls’ rights to enter places of worship or public spaces during menstruation. Girls are proving they are unscripted and unstoppable.

A Platform for Action

The Platform for Action specifically calls on the global community to:

• Eliminate all forms of discrimination against girls.

• Eliminate negative cultural attitudes and practices against girls.

• Promote and protect the rights of girls and increase awareness of their needs and potential.

• Eliminate discrimination against girls in education, skills development and training.

• Eliminate discrimination against girls in health and nutrition.

• Eliminate the economic exploitation of child labour and protect young girls at work.

• Eradicate violence against girls.

• Promote girls’ awareness of and participation in social, economic and political life.

• Strengthen the role of the family in improving the status of girls.

Stand with girls against gender-based violence online, by signing the letter today. It's time for change so girls are #FreeToBeOnline.
