Calling All Girls!

Calling all girls around the world!!!

October 11, 2017 will mark the 6th annual International Day of the Girl (IDG), and the 5th annual Girls Speak Out event at the United Nations. It’s a huge year for girls around the world. That’s why we need YOU!

Think about girls you know and girls around the world and how they are overcoming the unique challenges they face just because they are girls. Then think about what it’s like where you live. Do or girls like you face unfairness just because you are a girl?  How do you deal with it? How do you overcome it?

Then, tell us a story about it. How did you – or a girl you know where you live – handle something unfair, unjust or even experienced a crisis, just because she is a girl.

There are so many unusual challenges girls have to deal with today, from injustice in society, their community and in the workplace, to unfairness in opportunities in education, or gender violence, sexism, war, climate change, and many others. There’s no right or wrong answer here. What’s important is how you define “crisis” or “injustice” and how you or a girl you know dealt with it.

We want to hear YOUR story. Your story will inspire others. Your story is like the story of millions of girls around the world who will be empowered by hearing from you. So tell us your story!

What is IDG
IDG is our day to celebrate girls everywhere – to celebrate our power, our voices, and our unique place in this world. Help us showcase the creative and collective voice of girls everywhere. The leaders of today need to hear from you. Let’s inspire everyone with our stories of girl power — in art, pictures, poetry, songs, video — to showcase the unique role girls play in our world. No girl is alone. And we are stronger when we raise our voices together. That’s why we need your voice!

We will select a diverse set of bold, funny, sensitive, and powerful, everyday stories from girls to showcase during IDG 2017 on Wednesday, October 11 as part of the 5th annual Girls Speak Out event at the United Nations in New York City!

Here’s how you can send in your story:

  1. You can send your story as an individual girl, or a story put together by a group of girls — be sure that all of you are between 13-18 years old, and then capture your story!
  2. Tell the whole story in any way you wish –  monologue, a story, a poem, a rant, a piece of visual art, a video, or a song. Be you! Tell us: what happened?
     who was there?
     when was it?
     where were you?
     why did you do what you did?
     who supported you?
     what was the outcome?
  3. Then send it to us! Email it, with the consent form, to: IDGsubmissions@gmail.com
    Include: your name, age, country, and contact information
    Send it no later than Friday, August 18th 11:59PM US EST!

And get this, everyone who submits her work will be featured during the month of October on the DayoftheGirlSummit.org website, in our IDG2017 Webcast, or Shoutout Page! Please make sure your submission is in one of these formats:

Poetry or monologue (maximum 250 words)
Video or song (maximum length of 2 minutes)
Photograph (jpeg files of at least 500 x 500 pixels)
Art or graphic design (jpeg files of at least 500 x 500 pixels)

September’s Month of Action: Girls Taking the Lead

NIKON_D5100_20140412_8065This month, we are proud to feature some pretty amazing NJ middle school girls who developed their own Girls’ Leadership Program for girls just like them! 

This four-part program was designed to inspire and challenge girls to take the lead in their lives and in their communities. It was developed in partnership with the Princeton-Blairstown Center: a non-profit organization that has been helping young people build leadership skills for over 100 years. And we are honored to bring their efforts to the IDG Summit for September’s Month of Action.

This week: We dare you to see girls for their strengths!

Step 1: Watch Dare to Discover Yourself and see how these girls learned to overcome their fears while traveling across a tightrope 50 ft above ground!

Step 2: Share one thing that you will do to discover a hidden strength. Share it with us on Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to use #IDG2014 #11MonthsofAction
