International Day of the Girl 2020
11 October was declared International Day of the Girl (IDG) by the United Nations in 2012. Ever since, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world have been celebrating IDG every year. It is a key moment for us to come together to raise up girls' voices, and show how our Movement empowers girls and young women to shape the world they want to see all year long.
My voice, our equal future
In 2020, the IDG theme is "My voice, our equal future". It focuses on how girls can lead as a generation of activists accelerating social change. For us, this means empowering girls worldwide to create advocacy projects and campaigns that are truly led by them.
WAGGGS defines advocacy as the process that happens when we influence people to take decisions that will improve our lives and the lives of others.
Girl-led advocacy happens when girls are the ones choosing the issues they want to advocate on, defining the change they want to see and how to get there.
