Happy First Ever International Day of the Girl

15 Oct

October 11th 2012 was the first ever International Day of the Girl, thanks to the joint efforts of the United Nations, Plan International, and Status of Women Canada.

It was the occasion for everyone everywhere to remember how we must continue to encourage girls to actively take part in their communities, while guaranteeing them access to education and care, for them to be able to develop and blossom in a world free of violence against women and girls.

Sadly, this first International day of the girl will also be remembered due to the attempted murder of courageous young Pakistani activist, Malala Yousufzai. Let’s take this moment to salute her courage, her resilience, and continue to hope that she recovers fully, as quickly as possible…

The exhibit « Through her eyes » organized by the Women’s Y in Montreal highlighted the reality of girls throughout the world, through the showcasing of various projects girls have led everywhere to make their communities more welcoming, healthier, inclusive and safe for all.

The F.A.C.E girls’ Nomad box made a memorable appearance .. 🙂

« Through her eyes »: a multimedia exhibit organized by the YWCA. The Nomad box was showcased here

 

The exhibit was organized around seven themes, from girls’ education to body image.

The Nomad box was part of the « borders » section. A few of the My City, My Safety! Drawings were also included in the « activism » theme…

Multimedia products done by girls from all around the world were showcased

YOU GO GIRLS!
