International Day of the Girl Child 2016 observed across the world

International Day of the Girl Child 2016 observed across the world
11 October 2016 Current Affairs: The 2016 International Day of the Girl Child (IDGC) was observed across the world on 11 October 2016 with the theme Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls.

The theme for the 2016 IDGC asks for a call for action for increased investment in collecting and analyzing girl-focused, girl-relevant and sex-disaggregated data.

Globally, one in seven adolescent girls aged 15 - 19 are currently married or in union.

In developing countries (excluding China), one in every three girls is married before reaching age 18.Girls who are married early often face a cascade of other human rights abuses. They are more vulnerable to physical and sexual violence.

They are often pulled out of school to take on domestic responsibilities. They are less able to advocate for themselves and their rights.Child marriage is often followed by pregnancy, even if a girl is not yet physically or mentally ready. Every day, over 20000 girls under age 18 give birth in developing countries.

Across the globe, rates of child marriage are highest in sub-Saharan Africa, where around 4 in 10 girls marry before age 18; about one in eight were married or in union before age 15.

International Day of the Girl Child : It was created by the United Nations through a resolution in 2011. Its objective is to promote the rights of girls and address the unique challenges they face.It was held for the first time on 11 October 2012.
