Female Education is the Focus of International Day of the Girl This Year

 - Oct 11, 2013
This year's International Day of the Girl has a particular focus on female education. Every October 11th is dedicated to raising awareness about the unique challenges girl children face due to their gender. Female education in particular is known to help break the cycle of poverty in developing communities, while enhancing equality and girl empowerment.

These empowering trends have a feminist slant as they advocate equal treatment and opportunities for both men and women. This can be seen in several artistic expressions, from Women's Rights Land Portraits to Female Empowerment Prints and Feminist Rockstar Sketchbooks. Empowering videos in the form of commercials, public service announcements or satirical makeup videos are also present, as are mashup blogs starring Ryan Gosling. Feminism-favoring celebrities are also included.
