Is someone you admire doing right by girls?

Or maybe YOU are the one making the world a better place! 

We're calling on individuals and organizations from across the world to share how they are helping create a gender equal world. Our actions, however big or small, can lead to profound change. So write your story, submit a video, or share your artwork.

Perhaps you voice a podcast about an after-school program to empower girls. 

Or maybe you saw a friend's video about a social worker in your neighborhood.

It could simply be a powerful poem about your grandmother's journey to become educated.

We welcome your creativity! 

Help spread the word. And yes, there are big prizes!
