Amplifying issues affecting girls and young women [#thegirlchild]

In case you missed it, Global Press Institute’s Newswire dedicated its news coverage this week to focus on different issues affecting girls and young women in different countries. From Nepal to Kenya, Cameroon to Haiti, different issues affecting the girl-child were amplified. These are issues often ignored by mainstream media.

"We have included stories about prominent issues girls around the world struggle with -- but we have also told many stories about girls as changemakers and leaders. We hope 10/11/12 will be an opportunity to continue to advocate for change, but also pause to celebrate progress." Cristi Hegranes, the founder and Executive Director of GPI.
