We live in a world where being born female is a health risk. Day after day, around the world, girls are told their lives don’t matter: married off in their early teens, denied an education, burdened by household chores, providing food and care for sick relatives and denied a youth. It is time to raise a voice of hope. To ensure every girl is heard. To show that every girl matters.
Join us for a short film screening of India’s Girl Child and a panel discussion with a focus on girls in Malawi, Zambia, Nepal and India with Elaine Motion (Chair of Balfour + Manson LLP), Vicky Allan (Senior Features Writer at the Sunday Herald); James Wells (EMMS International CEO) and Cathy Ratcliff, (Director of International Programmes at EMMS International).
