To mark this years International Day of the Girl on 11 October, we are setting up girl takeovers in places of power and spaces where girls’ voices aren’t usually heard. We want to highlight the might of girls and their right to a voice on issues that influence them.
More than 150 #GirlsTakeover events are taking place across the globe to demonstrate girls strength, power and ability to change the world.
