This viral video put out by The Girl Effect is so powerful. Their position as an organization is that “Adolescent girls are the most powerful force for change on the planet” and this video really tells the sad story for many girls around the planet in a very impactful way.
The point here is that we must pay attention and help young girls grow up to be women of purpose and substance. If we help them escape hardships such as early “forced” marriage, early childbirth and exposure to disease and the elements that we can empower generations of contributors to society. People who can change the world around them and help make this a better planet for us all.
Most of the readers of this blog are men and so is the writer of this entry. That being said, I think this video really impacts us all and so i felt it was worth sharing. It is kind of scary to think that there is such a negative future for so many people that we share the planet with, and hopefully we can come together to make change. This video is actually a bit old now, yet many of the problems still remain. We have made strides, but so much more is to be done. Watch it here and share it with others!
