AMC Online | UN International Day of the Girl Child
Ms. Sinclair has sought to use the power of visual storytelling to provide evidence of the human rights challenges faced by girls and women around the world. Her 15-year series Too Young to Wed has earned numerous global accolades, including three World Press Photo awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and numerous prestigious exhibitions, including the United Nations (2012, 2014) and the Whitney Biennial (2010) in New York. Ms. Sinclair’s photographs are regularly published worldwide in esteemed outlets such as National Geographic and The New York Times Magazine.
This year in 2020, we celebrate 25 years since the adoption of the first international declaration to specifically address girls’ rights, adopted at the 1995 World Conference on Women in Beijing. In 2011, the United Nations General Assembly declared October 11 as International Day of the Girl Child to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges that girls face around the world. The 2020 theme “My Voice, Our Equal Future” will focus on the demands of living free from gender-based violence, harmful practices, and HIV and AIDS; learning new skills towards futures girls choose; and leading as a generation of activists accelerating social change.
