It's International Day of the Girl - a day to bring attention to girls' rights and the challenges that they face around the world.

Almost 25 years ago at the United Nations' fourth World Conference for Women, held in Beijing, China, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action policy for the empowerment of women was adopted.

"Today, October 11, we join over 100 countries in celebrating International Day of the Girl".

On the occasion of International Day of Girl, UNICEF, the child rights body, tweeted, "Brave, Powerful, Bold, Innovative, Resilient, Courageous, Strong, Unscripted, Unstoppable".

As the economic cost and burden of child marriage and low educational attainment is increasingly recognised, some leaders and governments are implementing comprehensive plans to end child marriage and remove barriers to girls' education.

Today on #InternationalDayoftheGirlChild we are launching our awareness programme on rights of the Girl Child through mobile Truck Art messaging enabled by Samar Minallah's fantastic Truck Art. For far too many girls around the world, a quality education and safe childhood is out of reach.

But in other countries it can be hard for girls to go to school - their family might not be able to afford it or they might want them to stay at home or get married instead of completing their studies.

International Day of the Girl Child is being observed across the globe to create awareness and to recognize the rights of women and girls across the globe. In the following years, the themes were, "innovating for girls' education", "Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence", and "The Power of Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030", "Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls,", "EmPOWER Girls: Before, during and after crises", and the theme for 2018 was "With Her: A Skilled Girl Force".
