International Day Of the Girl


What Do Girls Want?

It can’t be summarized on a single postcard, but we love our new Day of the Girl awareness tool. What else do you want, from education opportunities to stereotype-free living? Tell us all the things girls can and should expect from this world!

Want a copy of this awesome card? Register your Day of the Girl activities and we’ll send you copies of What Do Girls Want to share.
