In honor of International Day of the Girl, Beyoncé released her new video for "Freedom" featuring Kendrick Lamar, off the 2016 album Lemonade.

The International Day of the Girl Child as declared by the United Nations is a day aimed at creating more opportunity for girls and increasing awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. "More than two thirds of all child marriages are still taking place below the minimum age permitted by national law, showing the difficulty in ending the practice", says report. But millions of vulnerable girls will continue to be at risk unless child marriage is tackled head on.

"We need to change attitudes in communities so that we can end this harmful practice once and for all".

He stated that adolescent girls have the right to a safe, educated, and healthy life, not only during these critical formative years, but also as they mature into women. Child brides are also at greater risk of domestic and sexual violence. Parents may marry girls off so they have one less mouth to feed and in Africa will receive a "bride price" for the girl.

Mrs Ajimobi urged every individual to see the welfare of girls and their protection as their responsibilities in order to make a difference in the battle to ensure a level playing ground for girls as well as to reduce the level of vulnerability and exposure to danger that is associated with girls.

Empowerment: Punjab Minister for Human Rights and Minority Affairs Khalild Tahir Sindhu has said that empowerment of girls is a key strategic priority of the Punjab government and it is focusing on girls' education.

Thorning-Schmidt added, "When a girl gets married too young, her role as a wife and a mother takes over". Around the world, girls are less likely than boys to be enrolled in school, which deprives them of vital resources and their best chance to learn the skills needed for a successful adulthood and life in a modern economy.
