Stand up for girls worldwide

The United Nations has named October 11th as the International Day of the Girl. As the world celebrates the strengths and remarkable achievements of girls and women, we can't let people forget the female gendercide that continues to systematically eliminate thousands of girls every year in China and India.

In the process of filming the documentary It's a Girl, we met many girls in these countries who face deadly forms of gender discrimination on a daily basis. We launched the It's a Girl campaign to take a stand for these silenced girls and women, and today especially we have a chance for our voices to be heard!

So, when celebrating the life and promise of a young girl close to you, remember that countless other girls are denied the chance to thrive before they even have a chance to live. You can help make a difference. Take a stand:
