Day Of The Girl

EDM number 496 in 2012-13, proposed by Graeme Morrice on 11/09/2012.
Categorised under the topic of Incomes and poverty.

That this House celebrates the Day of the Girl on 11 October 2012 which was the result of extensive campaigning by Plan, the global children's charity committed to helping children from the world's poorest countries build a better future; recognises the link between girls' education and poverty; acknowledges that 70 per cent of those in poverty worldwide are female; notes that one in three girls around the world is denied an education as a result of poverty, conflict or discrimination; and supports Plan's Because I Am A Girl campaign which aims to help girls reach their full potential.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
