Summary "Half the children of the world -- the girls -- are treated unfairly because of their gender. But girls around the word are taking action. The International Day of the Girl features nine inspiring stories based on real girls' experiences with gender inequality around the word. From Brazil to Afghanistan to Canada, each story highlights issues faced by girls -- including gender-based violence, illiteracy, sanitation and child marriage -- and how they've overcome their adversities using intelligence, creativity, bravery and kindness. A celebration of the UN's International Day of the Girl Child, a day committed to supporting every girl in the world, this book reminds us that we can all overcome challenges and make positive changes in our communities and beyond -- not just one day a year, but every day."-- Provided by publisher.
