#WeAreInfluential Day of the girl - 11th october 2019

October 11th is Day of the Girl, which aims to address the unmet needs of girls across the world.

As The Girls’ Network keeps growing, with 1868 girls in the network this year, we are calling on mentees, mentors, ambassadors, teachers and supporters to tell us about the transformative power of this network of inspiring and inspired women and girls.

We believe that role models and champions who are women are key to inspiring the next generation of change-makers, but we also believe that teenage girls can themselves influence their mentors and role models to challenge the status quo today. We don't have to wait for change. #WeAreInfluential.
