Putting Girls on the Global Agenda

“We need to ensure that the girl agenda is on the global agenda. Girls themselves must lead this process.” 

At last month’s Families +SocialGood, we heard from a powerful group of voices about the challenges facing families around the world and how we can all work together to create the future we want. One of our favorite moments was this conversation between Girl Up Teen Adviser, Sarra Alayyan and Plan International CEO Anne-Birgitte Albrectson. They talked about what it takes to propel girls forward and why it matters for families, communities and societies at large. Watch their powerful conversation below.
