In honor of International Girls' Day today I would like to share with you all this incredible campaign I came across that provides a platform for getting involved with issues effecting girls on the global stage- including access to education, water &other resources, gender based violence, sex trafficking, stereotypes, child marriage and HIV.
Every 5 minutes a girl dies as a result of violence
1 in 4 girls gets married as a child
71% of human trafficking victims are female
63 million girls have undergone female genital mutilation
130 million girls are out of school

For those of you who don't know me on a personal level, these issues are very dear to my heart for a number of reasons. I devoted years to studying these topics in depth and attaining a degree with specialization in Women's and Gender studies &I previously facilitated a mentor program for "at risk" teenage girls in Metro Detroit. I hope to one day start a non-profit organization for disempowered teenage girls to heal through movement-- yoga, dance, flow arts, etc.
