On Friday 11 October, girls from high schools across Brisbane and South East Queensland enjoyed a unique experience as a part of the United Nations ‘International Day of the Girl Child’ celebrations. Run by organisers of the Women of the World, WOW, Festival in Australia, approximately 70 girls from years 10 and 11 participated in a program that featured inspirational stories and performances from young women and girls who have overcome adversity in their own lives, as well as conversations around what the future looks like in a gender equal world.
