Building Girl Force (E)
The programme will remind us how important it is not to ignore the girls, to protect their rights and their health, education and dignity. A call to end the discrimination they face at the hands of the society and mindsets, modern or medieval. From stopping child marriage, promoting girls’ education, standing up against gender-based violence and for girls’ rights to enter temples or public spaces during menstruation to focusing on problems like abnormal sex ratio, health and nutrition concerns - the girls' movement has evolved over the years. And, this day is an opportunity to take stock and reflect on how far we have travelled and the distance we have yet to cover.
