Beyonce Releases Powerful Video To Celebrate International Day Of The Girl
Wednesday was the International Day of the Girl and to celebrate, Beyoncé released a music video in conjunction with Chime for Change and Global Goals for her song "Freedom." The video features some very awesome little girls from all over the world dancing and lip-syncing and though they're both cute and inspiring, they're conveying a very important message that's breaking our hearts:
Captions explain that girls all over the world experience violence, in the form of murder, human trafficking, FGM, and even the every day oppression of keeping girls from getting an education. Global Goals wants to see these forms of suppression against women and girls ended by 2030. It's a staggering goal, with so much in the way, but watching these girls and their fierceness is giving everyone hope that change is possible:
You're not just fighting for yourself, but for the young women in your life that need you.
