International Day: #DayOfGirl Recap


Today is International Day of the Girl, a day created by the United Nations and managed by UNICEF in 2011 to call attention to the plight of the 62 million girls world wide who are uneducated and not given an opportunity to go to school.

Today, it has spurred several different movements and hashtags, as NPR, notes.

“Each hashtag represents a project or nonprofit group that works to improve the lives of adolescent girls,” a piece written today notes










Check out NPR’s roundup and analysis on the effectiveness of so many hashtags spawned from one movement and the efficacy of hashtag activism.
