October 11 is International Day of the Girl Child, a day dedicated to celebrating the voices and power of girls, championing their rights worldwide, and reflecting on the challenges they continue to face because of their gender.

Across Canada and around the world, girls are making an impact and creating positive change in their communities and far beyond. They are leading the way as students, entrepreneurs, volunteers and activists, and proving that you are never too young to shape the future and improve the lives of others.

The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified existing gender inequalities not only worldwide, but at home. This is why International Day of the Girl Child serves as an opportunity to recommit addressing these inequalities. We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.
