International Day of the Girl 2021
That’s why Plan International USA partners with girls to push through barriers and unlock their full power.
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. This year, we’re standing with girls and young women to combat rampant misinformation and disinformation that worsens their mental health, risks their safety and keeps them from fulfilling their true potential.
Building off our successful #GirlUnlocked campaign, which launched in 2020 and focuses on helping girls around the world knock down the doors that are holding them back, we’re aligning with girls, other organizations, donors and advocates like you to help put an end to the lies.
Join us in standing with girls and calling on national leaders to act now so girls and young women, in all their diversity, can be online and safe.
