About #GirlsTakeOver

In a world where the girls and young women are discriminated against because of their gender and age and are often prevented from getting to important societal positions, the #GirlsTakeOver is a call to action for social and political change to tear down barriers of discrimination and prejudice that continue to hold girls back.

#GirlsTakeOver is a global initative from Plan International whereby girls throughout the world occupy positions of power in connection with International Day of the Girl Child on 11 October. The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and many Swedish embassies around the world take part in the intiative.
