A brief video posted by the organization Plan International features young women from Pakistan sharing their message for the “Because I am A Girl” Campaign, which features a “Seven-Point Girls’ Declaration” on various subjects. These women have banned together to break the silence about women’s rights and education, particularly in their country but are supportive of all women in general. They had presented their message to the President of Pakistan and started such a powerful movement that they will be speaking in New York City to the UN to promote their message, as the UN agrees about Sustainable Development for the next fifteen years.
What an amazing thing accomplished at such as young age. #Girl4President
