The U.S. Embassy in London Posted the Most Wonderful Video for Day of the Girl

The Most Wonderful DotG Video

This picture shows girls, of different faiths and backgrounds attending an assembly at the Mulberry School in Tower Hamlets, London. The all-girls’ school is rated as “outstanding” by The Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED).  This is especially important to girls whose families might come from parts of the world where the importance of educating girls is traditionally forbidden.  Girls like Malala Yousafzi , whose attempted assassination by the Taliban in 2012 made her an outspoken advocate of girls’ education worldwide. In 2014, she won the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts to bring education to her native Pakistan and the world. That is why the girls in U.S. Embassy video is so powerful. Historically, there has always been backwards fundamentalists trying to keep them “in line” and subserviant, using tradition and religion to keep them from reaching their true potentials.  No matter their background, each of these girls is like Malala, willing to change the world, one girl at a time. #LetGirlsLearn #whengirlsgraduate #DayoftheGirl
