International Day of the Girl 2021

International Day of the Girl

Join the
movement in 2021

Girls all around the world are facing closed doors. And they’ve been stuck behind them for too long.

That’s why Plan International USA works with partners like you to help girls push through barriers to unlock their full power and potential.

International Day of the Girl is October 11, and Plan has been leading the global movement around this day ever since 2011, when we asked the United Nations to make it official. Every year, with the help of our supporters and partners, we unlock a movement for girls’ rights. And together we celebrate the power of girls.

For International Day of the Girl 2020, we launched Girl Unlocked, a national, multi-channel campaign focused on helping girls around the world knock down the doors that are holding them back.
