It's a girl thing

Good evening & welcome back to my blog! Yesterday was not only a brand new and beautiful day, but also important and special. Whether you got informed on social platforms or you learn now more about it here on my blog, it makes a difference that you get informed! If you got excited, please keep on reading! X 

Yesterday meant something to me because I am a girl and Because I am a girl is a global movement driven by Plan International to ensure girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive. I didn’t wanted to write about it yesterday because I’m not a fan of people who shows they care and all that jazz only when the thing or whatever they care about is celebrated or is important that day. Don't get me wrong, it's important to celebrate what you stand for when it is celebrated internationally, but the cause is often forgotten or only touched when it's marked on the calendar. I write about this campaign a day after because I still think it’s important even though the International Day of the Girl isn’t celebrated also today. Because I am a girl, I care about other girls & their rights not only on our International Day, but always. For me, there is no such thing as International Day because I am a girl and I believe we should celebrate girls every day. Yesterday, today and in the future days we’ll celebrate a global moment for girls and you’re invited to join us!

11 October has been a key global moment to celebrate the power of girls and highlight the barriers they face since the United Nations adopted it as International Day of the Girl in December 2011.  

Why is it important to me?

It’s important to me because firstly I am a girl myself. It’s not about the modern woman or sexism, it’s about rights and equality that some girls don’t yet have. It’s about simple things and things most of us take for granted, like education and freedom. We realize that there are children, especially girls who don’t have these things, something we didn’t even thought of because it feels normal that everybody goes to school or that every girl decide for herself when she'll get married.

It’s important to me because I believe every human being has the right to education, freedom and equality. It’s important to me because girls are just as important as boys are!

Research from Because I am a girl campaign :

“Our extensive research shows that girls continue to be the single most excluded group in the world. They face discrimination and abuse simply for being young and female. Girls and young women are often denied their right to:

engage actively and equally in society,
take important decisions about their futures and bodies,
justice and equal opportunities,
protection from gender based violence.”

One of the four things this campaign works for is Education. You can learn more about the other three things on their official website. The link will be given at the end of this post. 

All girls have the right to a quality, safe, formal education and access to lifelong learning.

There are currently 100 million girls in low and lower-middle income countries who cannot read a single sentence. Yet, evidence shows that for every year of education a girl completes, her future income increases by more than 10%. Educating girls benefits their families and communities, and strengthens whole countries and continents.

Progress is being made in getting girls to attend and complete primary school. One in 5 adolescent girls across the world is out of school. The constraints of poverty, location, gender stereotypes, social norms and customs can all be barriers for girls when it comes to getting an education.

Education is transformational for girls. It is the key to unlocking their potential. Educated girls are more likely to marry later and have fewer, healthier children. As a result, they have a better chance of staying healthy and remaining alive. When an educated girl grows up, she is more likely to invest her income in her children and send them to school. An educated girl will be a force for change in her society, raising the status of girls and women.

How can I help?
