Wednesday was the International Day of the Girl and to celebrate, Beyoncé released a music video in conjunction with Chime for Change and Global Goals for her song "Freedom." The video features some very awesome little girls from all over the world dancing and lip-syncing and though they're both cute and inspiring, they're conveying a very important message that's breaking our hearts.
International Day of the Girl was started in 2011 help girls worldwide better their lives and break the cycle of discrimination and violence towards them. The goal was the push girls to their full potential and teach them leadership to advance their opportunities. It's an important global date that could be celebrated by no one better than Beyonce:
Captions explain that girls all over the world experience violence, in the form of murder, human trafficking, FGM, and even the every day oppression of keeping girls from getting an education. Global Goals wants to see these forms of suppression against women and girls ended by 2030. It's a staggering goal, with so much in the way, but watching these girls and their fierceness is giving everyone hope that change is possible. We believe it is. Movements like this make it easier to see just what girls go through around the world -- not just in our own lives. It is very tough out there and many do not get the chance and opportunities many of us take for granted every day. The girls in the video are absolutely amazing.
You're not just fighting for yourself, but for the young women in your life that need you. Around the globe are millions of young women who will benefit from Global Girls and their fight to make sure they get a fair chance to be their best selves.
