The UN theme for this year’s International Day of the Girl Child, is “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: What counts for girls. While we can applaud the ambition and potential of the SDGs for girls, this Global Girl Data Movement will help in addressing the issues that are holding them back and it is also critical for fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals
Today’s 1.1 billion girls are a powerful force and an integral key to shaping a sustainable global generation. However girls continue to suffer discrimination, violence and lack of equal opportunities in every part of the world.
Regardless of where you live, gender equality is a fundamental human right. Advancing gender equality is critical to all areas of a healthy society, from reducing poverty to promoting the health, education, protection and the well-being of girls and boys.
