Celebrating the International Day of the Girl

October 11th is recognized by the UN as the International Day of the Girl Child to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.  The 2019 theme is:

GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppableworking alongside and supporting all girls to amplify their voices and stand up for their rights, we will celebrate achievements by, with and for girls since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and passage of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

To highlight these issues and as an integral part of the WOW Australia calendar, we have invited young women, years 10 and 11 to participate in a day of activities at QPAC and the Wheel of Brisbane at South Bank  They will get the chance to hear inspirational stories from young women and girls including those who are moving ahead to voice their beliefs with practicality as well as passion, workshop ideas to be included in the WOW Australia Festivals from next year for three years and participate in a unique speed mentoring session on the Wheel of Brisbane!
