The world is listening, so raise your voice for every girl's right to tell her story. Here are actions that you can take today on Facebook, Twitter and your other social networking sites to tell your friends and followers about the #standup4girls campaign.
1. Share the Stand Up for Girls 2013 campaign video.
2. Use the Stand Up for Girls Facebook banner as your cover photo. (Right-click on the image to save it to your computer or simply download it from the LitWorld Facebook page.)
3. Write a post telling the world who you stand up for - the women and girls who inspire you every day - and use the tags #standup4girls and #dayofthegirl to add your message to the global story.
Here are some sample posts:
