Because I am a Girl Stories

Youth & Economic Empowerment

WATCH: Girls Belong HERE!

Did you know that 52 countries do not guarantee equal rights for men and women in their constitutions? That there are fewer girls than boys at secondary school in more than half of all countries? Or, that less than 20 percent of the U.S. House of Representatives is female?

We believe girls’ voices fully belong in discussions that affect the political and economic lives of their communities and countries.

Girls belong anywhere and EVERYWHERE boys or men belong! This year, on International Day of the Girl, October 11, join us and tell the world #GirlsBelongHere!

Here’s how to get involved:

  1. Download our toolkit.
  2. Print out our sign.
  3. Share a photo or a video somewhere you feel girls and women are under-represented.
  4. Be sure to use the #GirlsBelongHere hashtag and tag @BcImaGirl!
