Day of the Girl
This International Day of the Girl, we’re unleashing the power and potential of girls all over the world.
Get involved by signing, donating or finding out more about what girls can achieve when we smash the stereotypes that hold them back.
The rate of change towards gender parity is agonisingly slow for girls growing up in Australia and around the world. At the heart of this issue is a lack of visibility about the experiences of girls - and it’s time we listened to what they have to say about this.
This year for International Day of the Girl, Plan International Australia partnered with Wellcom Worldwide to interview 18 Australian girls aged 10 to 17 years old, gaining rare insight into how this group experiences their world.
Asking girls where they feel inequality most profoundly, they also shared the things getting in the way of them living rich and fulfilling lives.
