Today is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and the start of #16days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. Girls are part of our society and sources of hope for the future. They are investments worth making! Here are 4 things we need to focus on:
1Protect girls from violence.
2Stop child pregnancies.
3Prevent HIV infection.
4End child marriage.
Now that you’ve heard the facts, don’t stay silent in the face of violence against girls in any form. Call it out every time, everywhere.
Improving girls’ rights isn’t just about girls – it’s about achieving gender equality. When girls are educated, healthy and safe, they have the power to create a safer and brighter future for themselves, their families and even their entire communities!
What’s good for girls, is good for Malaysia!
