Today is a very special day for me. My entire life I, like many other girls of Indian descent, celebrated Rakhri (also known as Raksha Bandan) which is essentially a tradition that entails tying a decorative string on your brother. The general idea is to ward off evil eye from your brother and the brother is supposed to promise to protect his sister. For years I did this without questioning why or even critically thinking. Having traveled the world and met so many people, abroad and right next door, who are negatively impacted by sexism in really severe ways, I now do critically think about these matters. I think about why a girl I've met in a village in India thinks it's okay for her brother, uncle or cousin to abuse her. I think about why girls feel they can't speak up. I also think about why parents in so many places view daughters as a burden. One of the reasons is that so many traditions we practice in many cultures around the world have sexism embedded into them and if we don't change that, they will always seem the norm. Girls shouldn't be raised to believe that brothers should protect and sisters require protection. Rather, they should be taught that they are equal and should both make a promise to each other. Sisters, daughters and mothers should be celebrated in all the same ways brothers, sons and fathers are and if a tradition suggests otherwise, then it's time to change that tradition. Just because something has happened for a long time, it doesn't make it right. To all my sisters and brothers, it's time to make it right. Today I got my first ever Rakhri tied on me by my baby bro and I'm overjoyed πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ #GirlLove @spreadgirllove

Children are #NotATarget.
As a @UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and more importantly, a member of humanity, I’m asking you to standup for #ChildrenUnderAttack and sign the petition at
www.worldhumanitarianday.org. No one chooses where they are born and as people who are privileged enough to live in safe areas of the world, it's our duty to speak up for those who don't have a voice. Comment below with a ❀️ once you're done. All kids deserve a story. Thank you! #OneLove
