507 million women and girls worldwide cannot read and write.
Stand Up for Girls mobilizes people of all genders, from all corners of the world, to advocate for a girl’s right to share her story and change the world. By learning to read, write, and share stories, girls understand that their words have the power to create monumental change at the community and international level.
The HerStory Campaign was created and led by two nonprofit organizations, LitWorld and Global G.L.O.W., and works to amplify the powerful stories of women and girls in their communities and around the world. On October 11th, the annual United Nations International Day of the Girl, we invite you to Stand Up and join our global community as we take action, highlighting the stories of girls from the world’s most marginalized communities. By listening to girls’ own stories and acting on them, we can build a better world together.
This year we will celebrate our strengths by standing up for women and girls around the world who inspire us to be strong.
