INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL 2019
Call in your squad and let’s take action all around the world!
We launched our first event to celebrate being a girl, it has became annual for AWE! We’ve been doing this for 7 years in a row now.
Let’s show girls how they and their identity matter. And not only girls, but women, to also believe it, share it and spread it.
This year we want all of you to Take Up Space celebrating together. YOU, Moxie Maker, launch a Take Up Space meet up wherever you are in the world!

Not only do we need to know the facts and share them, but also we need to do something to change these facts.
Here’s some quick UN facts for you on WHY IDGC 2019. This is a REALLY a critical time for the girls of our world.
There are many reasons for IDG even existing, in the video below you can check some of the main ones, 1:23min explain it AWEsomely. Click the gif to go to the video, or click here to watch. We loved it.
MOXIE MAKERS: Claire Shipman, Katty Kay, and Jillellyn Riley; after a research done with Ypulse (here’s a nice summary) explain how puberty kills girls’ confidence and, in an article, they sum up why we need to celebrate IDG:
“It’s essential to close the gap, and to do so early, because the long-term effects of these dynamics hurt not only girls, but the women they become, many of whom, within a few years of entering the workforce, experience another confidence drop, and a drop in aspirations.“
Let's smash the statistic of confidence peaking for girls at 9. Together, let's TAKE UP SPACE.
This year theme is bringing girls and grown up girls together to Take Up Space. Our success is reliant on each other. We can't make it in the world without each other.
Girls and their favorite GrownUps should learn to Take Up Space, teach other girls to do the same & build their confidence on #idg2019.
