Girls Speak Out 2021
Thank You for Joining the
Girls Speak Out 2021!
On 11 October 2021, girl activists and girl advocates participated in a virtual roundtable that was designed to deliver unscripted and authentic dialogue between policy makers and girl leaders involved in addressing the digital divide. In a candid girl-led conversation among girl activists, UN agency representatives, and leaders, girls shared how they are impacted by the digital divide and asked candid questions of policy makers around resources they need to be able to fully engage in an ever-increasingly digital-dependent world.
This event was sponsored by the Working Group on Girls, the Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of Peru to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of Turkey to the United Nations, UN Women, UNICEF, and UNFPA.

During the Girls Speak Out, artist Ipsita Divedi created a graphic recording of the transformative conversations between the girl activists and UN representatives. We hope this can be used as a tool to continue the conversation on digital inclusion for girls.
