Happy International Day of the Girl! It’s an online movement to change the gender status-quo worldwide, and Twitter is abuzz with helpful links and commentary on the topic.

Check out Change.org’s Day of the Girl page featuring campaigns started by girls about issues that affect their lives. My petition asking YouTube to remove a harmful channel that promotes street harassment is featured — and it’s racked up over 30,000 signatures! Be sure to sign and share so we can hopefully see some action on YouTube’s part as a result.

Are you doing any online activism today? I’d love to hear about it!
