Many people may not know but Saturday the 11th was the international 'Day of the Girl'. A day dedicated to recognising girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world, from domestic violence to discrimination. It is a wonderful day committed to empower young girls and I think its incredible that this is a 100% youth led organisation.
This years theme is focused on "Innovating for Girls' Education", which is so fitting as on the 10th of October, the brave Malala Yousafzai became the youngest person to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize for her activism and dedication towards girls' education.
We are experiencing a significant time for feminism, I'm sure that I am not alone when I say that
