"I want every girl to have opportunities, all the opportunities in the world: to have access to those opportunities, to have a voice, to have strength, to have support to have love, and to have happiness. I hope every girl will have freedom, and find courage. I hope she has the right to say no, the right to say yes. I hope every girl will have the knowledge that whatever they set their heart and minds on, that they can do anything that they want.⠀
When the girls we’ve been meeting in Uganda saw our “You see a girl, I see the future” T-shirts, their faces lit up and that’s exactly how I felt when I first saw it because that is what the future needs. That is what this world needs." - @caradelevingne ⠀

In #Somalia, these women are changing the status quo. Women police officers now make 10% of the city's police force. 🏽 #Repost@bbcnews
5 MAY: Being a police officer in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, is one of the most dangerous beats in the world, and it is even harder for women. They now make up 10% of the city's force. The BBC follows them around the city to see the difficulties they face. Find out more: bbc.in/somaliacops #Mogadishu#Somalia#Police#Women#BBCShorts#BBCNews@BBCNews

10 years ago, the @unitednations adopted the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). Today, the Declaration is the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of indigenous peoples. ⠀
Elvira (pictured above) is one of the many indigenous girls in #Guatemala Girl Up is committed to empowering. As a mentor to younger indigenous girls, Elvira says "we need girls to know their rights and continue their studies." Full blog link in bio. #indigenousgirls : @_saul.martinez

"The idea of interviewing #Malala and [Canadian] Prime Minister @justinpjtrudeau was truly an honor and an opportunity to encourage our audience to support girls’ and women’s equality even further... Our message to all the girls involved with Girl Up who are reading this, is to always believe in yourselves and continue to work hard to support girls and women’s equality around the world." ⠀
Girl Up Club United Club Co-Presidents and #firstname.lastname@example.org share their experiences interviewing Malala and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Blog link in bio. 🏽🏽🏽 #GenderEqualityHeroes#Canada#Advocacy#YesAllGirls#DreamTeam

"[As a mentor] some of the workshop topics we talk about are self-esteem, why we should love one another and how to prevent violence. Preventing violence is one of the important workshops topics [we discuss] because all the girls here have experienced violence in their own families." - Claudia, mentor. ⠀
In countries like #Guatemala where poverty and inequality are prevalent, indigenous girls are by far the most disadvantaged and vulnerable group. Through the efforts of #mentors like Claudia, she is on her way to empower the next generation of girls leaders. @unfpa Full blog in bio link.

"If you remain silent, you are still going to be targeted, so it’s better to speak up and try your best. I decided to speak up. I had to stay strong. Extremists tried their best to stop me, they tried to kill me and they didn’t succeed. And it’s a clear evidence that no one can stop me and this means that now this is a new life, this is a second life, and it’s for the purpose of #education. Since then I decided to work for education and today being a United Nations Messenger of Peace for special focus on girls’ education is clear I will continue to work for girls’ education" - Malala Yousafzai responds to Girl Up Club President Chloe's question. ⠀
Yesterday, Girl Up had the opportunity to see @unitednations Secretary General António Guterres designate Malala Yousafzai the youngest UN Messenger of Peace and ask them questions.
Thank you @malalafund for the opportunity, we left feeling inspired and empowered! #withMalala

Statement from @girlupcampaign Director Melissa Kilby on the recent elimination of U.S. funds for @UNFPA:⠀
"UNFPA has been one of Girl Up’s key implementing partners since our founding. The Girl Up team saw first-hand how the agency is helping girls take control of their lives on our recent learning trip to #Guatemala visiting our Girl Up-supported UNFPA program which works to prevent child marriage and give girls a chance to continue their education and choose their own futures. Girl Up will continue to work closely with UNFPA to support programs in #Guatemala, #Liberia, #Malawi, and #India to help ensure that the world’s most vulnerable girls have an equal chance at education, are not forced into early marriage, and can live happy, healthy lives."⠀🏽♀️

"For girls around the world, a bike is so much more. A bike is freedom. A bike is hope. A bike is a future. Estefani's bike will help her arrive to school... she will get an education." ⠀
Former Teen Advisor @nehaljain_ writes how a bike is more than a bike for girls like fifteen-year-old Estefani who lives in rural Guatemala. Essay link in bio. #SchoolCycle 🏽♀️ @UNFPA : @_saul.martinez
