    The world celebrated the United Nations’ International Day of the Girl on Sunday, October 11.

    This annual celebration focuses on the different challenges that girls have to deal with every day and at the same time encourage people all over the world to help uplift and empower them. This year’s theme is “My Voice, Our Equal Future”.

    According to a statement issued in the United Nations’ website, “Progress for adolescent girls has not kept pace with the realities they face today, and COVID-19 has reinforced many of these gaps. This year, under the theme, ‘My Voice, Our Equal Future,’ let’s seize the opportunity to be inspired by what adolescent girls see as the change they want, the solutions- big and small- they are leading and demanding across the globe.”

    In line with this holiday, many celebrities help raise awareness by spreading this powerful message through their respective platforms. Here are some of them:

    Charlize Theron

    “Today is the #DayoftheGirl. Tag just one friend to share their SUPPOSED TO / CHOSE TO story. Because when a girl find [sic] her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. That’s #TheGirlEffect. I was SUPPOSED TO be financially dependent. I CHOSE TO financially independent.”

    Meghan Markle

    She said in a discussion with Malala Yousafzai, “So much is at stake when you don’t give women the opportunity to learn and get an education. I think there is no greater time for all of us to acknowledge that with everything else happening with COVID, I think that International Day of the Girl for each of us to make a commitment that yes, the layers upon layers that are happening… but all it has done is add on top of the problems that were already existing.”

    Today is International #DayoftheGirl — and I’m proud to share my story in support of #TheGirlEffect. ⠀ ⠀ Society told me I was SUPPOSED TO be nice, be pretty, be sweet, be feminine. Instead, I CHOSE TO own my strength, cultivate my mind, and embrace my power. ⠀ ⠀ At a young age, so many girls are taught to be comfortable walking two steps behind their male peers. As someone who always identified in mind and body as an athlete –– that never made sense to me. Women are powerful and that’s a great thing. Even though it scares the sh*t out of people. ⠀ ⠀ While the gender stereotypes have evolved and we’ve come a long way — it’s still so important for little girls everywhere to recognize that they are capable of everything – and more. We have to teach all children equality so that one day, girls will be represented EVERYWHERE that decisions are made. ⠀ ⠀ Tag just one friend who inspires you to share your SUPPOSED TO / CHOSE TO story. Why just one? Because when one girl finds her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do the same…and THAT changes the world. Learn more at @girleffect. ⠀ ⠀ ❤️

    David Beckham

    “All girls, wherever they are in the world, should have the chance to learn and to achieve their potential. Our daughters deserve just the same opportunities as our sons. Today on #DayoftheGirl we celebrate girls all around the world who are working hard to make a positive change in their lives and communities.”

    Kate Upton

    “I want my daughter grow up in a world where girls are protected, empowered and treated equally. International Day Of The Girl is meant to promote the empowerment of young girls everywhere, while also advocating for the attainment of their basic human rights, like education and bodily autonomy. We, as a global society, need to address the challenges, biases, dangers, and injustices young girls deal with all over the world – and make a change.”
