Girls deserve better.

Girls face violence every second. Worldwide, 50 percent of sexual assaults are against girls under 16 years old. Before the age of 18, girls experience violence in countless forms – domestic violence, female genital mutilation (FGM), trafficking, militarism, forced marriage, and more – all with long-lasting implications for their health and their future. Girls deserve better, so stand up and speak out for a safe world for girls.
