We’re thrilled to share our ongoing support for International Day of the Girl, a globally celebrated day that puts a spotlight on critical issues affecting girls around the world.
Now in its fourth year, International Day of the Girl (IDG) is a United Nations-declared holiday designated to raise awareness about education, empowerment, and equality for all girls—everywhere. Millions of girls across the planet currently don’t have access to education and are viewed as less than their male counterparts. Celebrated on Wednesday, October 11, IDG focuses on advancing rights and opportunities for girls and women worldwide.
This year, team Barneys asked our employees and their daughters to submit their message for our annual #GirlPossible campaign. See below for some of our submissions.
You too can join the global movement by taking part in our #GirlPossible campaign with these four easy steps:
- On a piece of paper, write the message, “Girls are ____________.” And fill in the blank with your answer.
- Snap a pic holding your message.
- Share the photo on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook using the hashtags #GirlPossible and #IDG2017.
- Tag your heroes—anyone who inspires you—to nominate them to take part as well.
