It was International Day of the Girl Child yesterday and the good people behind the Gender Equality campaign for The Global Goals initiative released a video yesterday. Not only does it capture the exceptional work they’ve done in the past year but it also features a track you might recognize.
Another reminder of how girls have always shone through came in the form of this timely picture of Sarla Thakraal, India’s first female pilot.

What we’re really waiting for is the time when we neither have to campaign for girl children nor find the necessity to attach ‘female’ to every accomplishment or description. The good news is, it’s already happening.
