The United Nations declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child saying it was done in order to “recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world,” with an emphasis on a girl’s right to education. There’s also a facebook movement and a UNICEF initiative. If you’d like to be a part of the International Day of the Girl Child, click one of the links to learn more.

Education is something we take for granted here in the United States, but getting one is not a foregone conclusion for young women in many places. Malala Yousafzai, a teenager from Pakistan who spoke out after the Taliban destroyed the schools in her city, was shot on her school bus for daring to challenge them. Today, she may be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
