International Day of the Girl Child

Today ParlAmericas is observing International Day of the Girl Child. The recognition of this day is particularly relevant to ParlAmericas’ permanent working group, The Group of Women Parliamentarians, which is committed to creating conditions for equal opportunities in the Americas. The Group’s work seeks to include a gender perspective on the legislative agenda of parliamentarians, who set the stage for girls to access the resources and education necessary to become fully participating citizens and leaders in national legislatures and other political spaces in the hemisphere.
