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.
