International Day of the Girl Child - "Ending Child Marriage"
The United Nations has declared October 11, 2012 as the world's first International Day of the Girl Child.

The theme for the first-ever observance of the Day will be "Ending Child Marriage," chosen because child marriage is a phenomenon that violates millions of girls' rights, disrupts their education, jeopardizes their health, and denies them their childhood, limiting their opportunities and impacting all aspects of a girl's life.
