“I was not born to be denied”
Two statements from the powerful Girls Declaration at the conclusion of the Girls Summit 2014. The Summit ended in London with hundreds of millions of pounds committed in an effort to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage within a generation.
The innovation in the layout and text of the declaration matched the power of its words and the incredible story of how it was created. The meeting was informed by the Girls Insights Report, which argues that development policies should be shaped girls insights.
