International Day of the Girl

We just spoke on Monday in class about gender equality, especially in the developing countries, and now it turns out that it is the International Day of the Girl today. Did you now that every three seconds another girl becomes a child bride?  These sort of facts can make me so upset and I am so happy that I'm grown up in a country where gender equality has come further than that, not that everything is perfect here either.

I found this video on Afrah Nasser's blog, a very interesting blog by a Yemen girl living in Sweden, she writes both in arabic and english on her blog. I found her blog trough Heidi, since she posted an interview with Afrah on her blog. Interesting ladies both of them!
