Fundación Tellus hosts the forum “The challenge of being a girl”

On the occasion of the celebration of the “International Day of the Girl Child” on 11 October, Fundación Tellus, of the law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, will host the forum “The challenge of being a girl: in defence of girls’ rights”.

This forum was created as a space for reflection on the challenges faced by girls in different contexts, based on the testimony of various stories of individual and collective overcoming, with the aim of giving visibility to these uncomfortable realities, identifying them, so that they can be solved and society can be transformed.

The director of communication and IR of Entreculturas, Raquel Martín, shared her campaign “La luz de las niñas”, within the framework of the area aimed at addressing ‘The right to education’. An initiative that, so far, has helped more than 58,000 girls through projects in 16 countries.

“Violence against girls is not anecdotal, but a global pandemic phenomenon, a structural violence that needs to be addressed in a structural way,” said Martín.

The campaign seeks to establish mechanisms in four directions. Firstly, to help make this reality visible so that it is not understood as tradition or culture, but as a violation of human rights. Secondly, to protect, generating alert and listening systems for girls. Thirdly, to help girls build self-esteem. The fourth factor is advocacy, “in a fight against these injustices in which all voices are needed,” she said.
