.Women having the chance at a happier, healthier life should be reason enough to promote girls' education. But, educating girls is ALSO the lifeline to so many things. Equality, empowerment, economic development. In many countries, more than half of girls drop out before 6th grade. .
It enrages us what girls are going through around the world. We all want to live free of sexual and physical violence. We all want to be taken seriously as individuals and given equal opportunity. Yet so many are deprived of that everyday. 50% of girls that are sexually assaulted are under 16 years old. Lightworkers like @malala are changing the trajectory of the world.
We're donating all profits from today's Blume purchases to the @malalafund, committed to sending girls to school, across the globe. 🌍🌎🌏 @malala ✊🏼❤ #girlrisingYVR
On the #DayOfTheGirl, let's celebrate girls and invest in them, too. ❤🌻
