"...Slavery is a global issue. In some parts of the world people are still born into hereditary slavery, in others people are trafficked from one state to another, stripped of their passports and enslaved. Slaves walk among us.

Those words are from the Girl Declaration - a rallying call to make sure girls' needs are fully reflected in the post-2015 development goals.
Girls were ignored in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expire in 2015. The Girl Declaration is launched today to make sure the world doesn't repeat that mistake.
Pakistani girl activist Malala Yousafzai, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Queen Rania of Jordan, Barbara Bush, United Nations Foundation CEO Kathy Calvin, CARE CEO Helene Gayle, Microsoft and the Intel Foundation have all signed the Declaration.
Calvin says: "Girls are one of the most potent weapons against poverty. A healthy, educated, empowered adolescent girl has the unique potential to break the cycle of poverty for herself, her family and her country.
"The Declaration represents the voices of 250 million girls living in poverty today. The world needs to listen to them and act now to end poverty.""
