Is someone you admire doing right by girls? Or maybe YOU are the one making the world a better place!

Individuals and organizations from across the world now have the chance to share how they are helping to create a gender equal world. Every action however big or small can lead to profound change. So write your story, submit a video, or share your artwork.

  • Perhaps you voice a podcast about an after-school program to empower girls;
  • Or maybe you saw a friend’s video about a social worker in your neighborhood;
  • It could simply be a powerful poem about your grandmother’s journey to become educated.
