I have visited girls in favelas, slums, refugee camps and war zones. the hardest thing is to see a girl nearly my age, with all the dreams and aspirations that i have, stuck in a situation she didn’t create and unable to choose her own future.
today is international day of the girl. let’s make it more than just feminist t-shirts and hashtags. if we truly believe “the future is female” or that “girls run the world,” we need to support girls on the front lines of the fight for education and equality.
