IDG is a day of recognition of the power and potential of girls. Just three years ago, the UN declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere. October 11 is not just a day; it’s a movement. (dayofthegirl.org)
Join us for our GCE-US International Day of the Girl Nationwide Action: #GIRLPossible. "#GIRLPossible,” is a “photo booth” that takes place wherever you are. On the day of the action you will ask participants in your community and/or campus to illustrate "nothing is impossible, everything is #GIRLPossible," by using costumes to illustrate jobs and/or attributes that are #GIRLPossible. For example, a lab coat or a law book to illustrate that being a doctor, scientist, lawyer or a judge are all #GIRLPossible!
Sound like fun? Check out our step by step guide today! Can do a full photo booth? That is okay! Take a picture of yourself showing what your #GIRLPossible looks like. Are you training for a marathon? Studying for or taking the PRAXIS/GRE/LSAT/MCAT etc? Are you running for an office or do you hold an office? Are you the goalie on your soccer team? Are you getting up everyday with a smile on your face? ALL of that and MORE is #GIRLPossible so show it off and share!
