International Girls Day
Celebrate International Girls Day on or around November 14.
Media messages, cultural stereotypes and peers often tell girls that they have to look, act and be a certain way. Created by Kappa Delta Sorority, International Girls Day is a day to celebrate girls – all kinds of girls with all kinds of interests and abilities. It’s an opportunity to build confidence in girls and help them realize their potential.
Kappa Delta chapters and women around the world celebrate this special holiday each year.
Girls Support Girls.
International Girls Day started on October 11, 2012. The observation supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence against women and forced child marriage. The celebration of the day also reflects the successful emergence of girls and young women.
