International Day of the Girl
October 11, 2021
Each year in mid-October, International Day of the Girl is celebrated and acknowledges the contributions girls make in their communities as well as the bias they face on a daily basis. In conjunction with International Day of the Girl, Stephenie Foster is sharing a comprehensive resource on what each of us can do - large actions as well as small - to fight for women and girls. Whether you want to run for political office, secure equality in education, speak out against violence or merely talk about unfairness around your dinner table, this vital toolkit is a must read. Stephenie walks the reader through every step that leads to moving the needle towards a more equal world.
On this International Day of the Girl, Stephenie Foster is kicking off a campaign to share the actions you take (big or small). By stepping into your own voice and taking action on behalf of women and girls, share your action on social media using the hashtag #fight4women #fight4girls. The goal is to reach 2,021 actions by the end of the year.
Perhaps you asked your local store why they don’t carry a certain product for women, or you requested that femine hygiene products be offered free of charge, or maybe you decided to run for office, or registered to vote. Your voice matters and your actions matter. Stephenie is inviting everyone to highlight their actions to push for a more equal world.
In her book Take Action: Fighting for Women and Girls, Stephenie addresses the inequalities in education, economic opportunities and gender-based violence and politics. This is a vital resource to anyone looking to participate in fighting for women and girls.
