International Girls Day
Celebrate International Girls Day on or around November 14.
Media messages, cultural stereotypes and peers often tell girls that they have to look, act and be a certain way. Created by Kappa Delta Sorority, International Girls Day is a day to celebrate girls – all kinds of girls with all kinds of interests and abilities. It’s an opportunity to build confidence in girls and help them realize their potential.
Kappa Delta chapters and women around the world celebrate this special holiday each year.
In our chapter, we love to celebrate International Girl's Day with our local Girl Scouts of Eugene. This year we invited a local troop over to our home for a confidence building workshop. We had each person write insecurities on balloons and then release them to symbolize letting go of what holds us back. We also played games, had a fashion show, and had snacks!
