The Brief: This is a campaign to honor and support girls.
Day of the Girl (#DayOfTheGirl) is a day to celebrate girls around the world, advocating for their rights and drawing attention to the issues that affect them.
There are few things that inspire me like seeing the potential of adolescent girls around the world. Today, on International #DayoftheGirl, I’ll be on the @TodayShow to discuss the ways we can help adolescent girls get the education they deserve. I hope you’ll join me. https://t.co/XwBEoFK3nZ

Happy #DayOfTheGirl! Just a reminder that you shouldn’t need to have daughters to know that sexual assault is bad!

The UN has declared today the international #DayoftheGirl. So we gave young women photographers across oceans and cultures an assignment: show us what 18 looks like in your community. 21 women told us in their own words. #Thisis18 https://t.co/p1Cc4ASxkO

Today is #DayOfTheGirl and I just want to reiterate that Black and Brown girls from the hood should be on your global gender equity agenda.

Today's international #dayofthegirl. Girls Who Code asked me to write something I care about on my hand – #NoBanNoWall – my fam is in Iran and they are banned from coming to the states. It makes me sick to live in a place that won't allow my family to come here. Keep fighting 💕 pic.twitter.com/5zzfB3C09Y
