Day of the Girl

Day Of the Girl is a music initiative highlighting the challenges young women and girls face around the world, through a series of exclusive events in October.

Celebrating young women and girls within the music industry.

Through a celebration of young, woman-identifying talent across the music industry, Day Of The Girl, aims to create a moment that highlights the specific challenges girls and young women face around the world, and to raise vital funding to help War Child protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children affected by conflict. 

The event series, takes place in the month of October to coincide with the UN ratified International Day of the Girl, a campaign to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while encouraging empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights. 

To date, Day Of The Girl has been supported by some incredible names across the industry including GRIFF,, the MMF, Abbey Road Studios MD and YouTube Music.

It is such an important initiative and one which I really stand behind not only as a female performer, but as a woman in a world where unequal opportunity and challenge for female-identifying individuals is still rife – particularly in the communities which War Child operate in. I am proud to be lending my voice to help amplify those of girls and young women everywhere.

We are so excited for Day Of The Girl to return this October, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for details on what will only be a bigger and better year celebrating young women and girls around the world.
