Today marks the first ever International Day of the Girl, which is trying to raise awareness about girls issues all around the world. I admittedly don’t know much about this yet, but here are some interesting facts I read from the main Day of the Girl Website:
Only 30% of girls worldwide are enrolled in secondary school
One out of seven girls in developing countries are married before the age of 15
54% of 3rd-5th grade girls worry about their appearance, and 37% worry about their weight
