Today is the Day of the Girl.
October 11 is not just a day, but a movement. 10.11.12 is bigger than one issue, one organization, or even one country.
This successful campaign to establish the United Nations International Day of the Girl was led in the US by School Girls Unite, an organization of students and young women leaders determined to advance the UN Millennium Development Goals related to gender equality and universal basic education, and other human rights issues.
