Countdown to Day of the Girl!

On October 11 the world will celebrate the first Day of the Girl because as the organizers state: "History shows that it hasn’t ever been easy to be a girl, and, despite awesome changes in the status and perception of women and girls, herstory is still a complicated and challenging one."

Locally in Seattle there are several ways you can be involved with events scheduled throughout the day:

11:30am-1:00pm Powerful Voices Day of the Girl Luncheon

415 Westlake Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 (South Lake Union neighborhood)

The program will feature girls and alumnae of Powerful Voices. Hosted by Mistress of Ceremonies Felicia Guity, General Manager of Channel Marketing and General Incentives Management for Microsoft, named as one of Ebony Magazine's "Outstanding Women in Marketing and Communications."


1:30-2:30pm Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center 

440 5th Ave. N, Seattle, WA, 98109

"Where are the girls in African agriculture and rural economies?"   Arlene Mitchell from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will share her work experiences with girls in rural sub-Saharan Africa. She will share personal observations, anecdotes and data about the challenges and the opportunities for girls in resource -poor rural areas."

 

5:00-7:30pm NWGC Tweet Up then Meet Up!

Murphy’s Pub in Wallingford

After a full day of girl-related events, join us to continue the conversation with your NWGC peers! Please bring your friends and colleagues, the more the merrier! In addition, bring any resource materials or event information your organization wishes to share with the group about spring activities.

 

5:30-8:30pm Wonder Women! film screening hosted by Reel Grrls

               Big Picture, 2505 First Avenue

Join forces to see one of the great films making the film festival circuit this year. Reminisce about your favorite superheroines. Be inspired. And learn more about women who are heroines in our own community. New Day Northwest's host, Margaret Larson and Seattle Times columnist Nicole Brodeur will lead a raucous discussion after the screening with Jennifer Stuller and Maile Martinez.

 

All Day, GlobalWA encourages you to connect with your community to delve deeper into the issues and organizations that are influencing women and girls worldwide. Whether it’s with your religious group, school, family, or friends, there are opportunities to be a part of Washington’s solutions for global poverty and health. They have some great ideas to help you stand for girls!

 

October 11 also kicks off the Elles exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum – stop by between 10:00am-9:00pm to enjoy this landmark exhibition of more than 130 works of art made by 75 women artists from 1907 to 2007.

 

Finally, if you are on Facebook or Twitter, be sure to tune into our pages to keep up to date on all the Day of the Girl happenings in the next few days!
