Description
From the author of Every Day is Malala Day . Because I am a Girl is a global initiative from Plan International to end gender inequality, promote girls' rights and lift millions of girls out of poverty. Plan helped the UN declare October 11th the "International Day of the Girl" to recognize and advocate for girls' rights globally. This book illustrates the Because I am Girl call to change by telling stories of girls around the world. They begin by telling us "Because I am a girl, I eat if there is food left over when everyone is done" and "I am the Poorest of the Poor." But it ends with the inspiring section "Because I am a Girl, I can change the world." Each part begins with one real girl's story, illustrated with Plan's amazing photographs.
