On Sunday October 13, 2013, over 300 girls and women gathered for Girl Power Day to celebrate the International Day of the Girl and to empower girls to face the challenges posed by popular culture and the stresses of everyday life. The day opened with a keynote address by Dana Edell of SPARK Movement, where she told the girls that they have the power to make changes in the world and challenged them to come up with something they would like to change. After that everyone chose from 2 dozen different workshops on topics from body image, bullying and self-esteem to financial literacy and self-defense. Participants chose the topics that most interested them and designed their own girl power days to meet their personal interests. The day concluded with a presentation by 13 year old Lillian Rogers of Girl Up who told the audience what it's like to be a girl in other countries around the world and then helped everyone connect to girls around the world by writing letters to them. These letters will be hand-delivered to girls around the world by UN representatives. It brought they day full-circle by letting everyone take action on the spot to make a difference in the world!
