Celebrating International Day of the Girl
International Day of the Girl is on October 11th.
What is Day of the Girl?
Day of the Girl is a youth-led movement making sure girls around the world have a voice so they can help influence social change and youth rights. Although we should focus every day on creating a world free of discrimination for young women and girls, in 2011, the United Nations declared October 11th the official day to celebrate.
We at Athleta have always been committed to helping young girls develop a positive self-image through sports and a healthy lifestyle. We believe that girls are our future. That’s why every year we partner with Girls On The Run – an organization that inspires young women to be healthy and confident – to bring activity-driven events to our stores the weekend of October 15-16. Come join us!
