11th October is International Day of the Girl

By | 9th October 2015

We are marking 2015’s International Day of the Girl by reaffirming our resolution to Prevent Tragedies.

We care deeply about the well-being of women and girls throughout the world. We reject the degrading treatment of women by terrorist organisations. We seek to prevent the tragedies caused by it.

We declare that women and girls should not be subject to forced or bogus marriage, rape, held in slavery, denied education or encouraged to put themselves and their children in danger. Men and women who do these things to others are to be condemned.

We resolve to work together and would like to invite others who want to work with us to join us to end the malign influence and abuse that diminishes the potential and lives of women.
