Global Gathering for Girls – Oct 14 at 1pm GMT

Blog Banner

Five countries, six languages, and 100 young people leading change in their communities. Please join Women and Girls Lead Global at our Global Gathering for Girls. We’ll be convening youth from Kenya, India, Bangladesh, Jordan and Peru via Google Hangout to discuss how they’re tackling the greatest challenges facing girls in their countries.

We’ll be joined by Sikha Patra and Salim Shekh, the lead characters from the documentary film Revolutionary Optimists, whose activism has become an inspiration to young people around the world; and by moderator Rebecca Gaynier, founder of iTwixie, an online platform connecting girls’ authentic voices with decision-makers.

Please log on to the Women and Girls Lead Global YouTube Channel to watch the conversation live on October 14 at 1:00pm GMT (see below for time zones around the world).

WGLG will be live-Tweeting about the event and we invite you to join us using #GirlFuture.

Here’s to creating the best #GirlFuture imaginable, together!
