“Girls Who Transform the World” demonstrates the power of girls and at the same time makes people aware of the problems, challenges and opportunities faced by girls in the 21st century.
Detroit, MI (Merxwire) – Girls worldwide face many challenges: from how to obtain an education, funding, and opportunities, to digital harassment, and even more significant risks of domestic abuse. Despite these challenges, girls are ready to change the world. They are creators; they are innovators; they are powerful.
Girls can change the world through entrepreneurship, leadership traits, volunteer service, or art, and talent. “Girls Who Transform the World” wants the world to hear the voice of girls, to expand the voice of girls to the world, and to let the world know the abilities of girls.
From October 1-11, 2020, Empowered Flower Girl will dedicate its social media channels to “Girls Who Transform the World.” The company will host a live discussion and kickoff event via Facebook as well as highlight girls who are making an impact in their communities.
“We’re doing this in honor of International Day of the Girl, which is observed every year on October 11,” said Rasheda Kamaria Williams, founder and chief empowering officer of Empowered Flower Girl. “Our goal is to celebrate and honor generations of girl power while bringing awareness to the issues, challenges and opportunities facing girls in the 21st century.”
The International Day of the Girl campaign encourages girls to amplify their voices and stand up for their rights. This year, under the theme “My voice, our equal future,” organizations and individuals are encouraged to seize the opportunity to re-imagine a better world inspired by adolescent girls – energized and recognized, counted and invested in.
