October 11 – International Day of the Girl

TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — With the October 11 observance of the International Day of the Girl Child, Canadian researcher Caril Phang emphasizes education as vital to the empowerment of girls, and women. "Organizations such as UNESCO insist that cultural co-operation is essential to pedagogy, and it is this perspective which informs my work." An advisor on parity, and cultural inclusion in industry, Phang insists that greater representation of women in the production of popular works is vital to enhancing the self-image of our girls. "One of my favourite directors, Tania Hoser, insists that the arts can empower women, being a creative format with informativefunction. The day our girls can see themselves trulyfully represented in popular culture − in all their complexities as human beings − is the day my work will be done."
