Celebrate International Girls Day on Nov. 14
Who is today’s girl? She’s tomorrow’s leader. She’s president of her senior class and future president of the USA. She’s the up-and-coming CEO of a Fortune 500 company and the brains behind the next breakthrough in medical science. She’s a future gold medal Olympic athlete, an inventor, an entrepreneur, a philosopher. She is impacting her community – today and into the future. Girls can do anything!
Media messages, cultural stereotypes and peers often tell girls that they have to look, act and be a certain way. With the slogan, “She Can Do Anything,” International Girls Day is a day to celebrate girls – all kinds of girls with all kinds of interests and abilities. It’s an opportunity to build confidence in girls and help them realize their potential.
Do you belong to a girls’ organization like Girl Scouts, Girls Inc., a girls’ church group or another organization for girls? Do you have a group of special friends who are always there to encourage you?
