In the modern world, due simply to reasons of gender, many girls are still denied educational opportunities or the freedom to make lifestyle choices. Currently, via its SNS action entitled, “#Girl4President - Giving Girls of the World Wings! -,” Plan, an international non-government organization that supports girls through its “Because I am a Girl” campaign, is working to inform as many people as possible about the difficulties that directly confront girls worldwide. It is also seeking to have such people support the potential that these girls possess.

To participate, all you have to do is to take a photograph that feature wings as a motif, and then to post it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accompanied by the hashtags “#Girl4President” and “#JP”. Within the wings motif, there is the message that every girl has the potential to spread her wings, while behind the #Girl4President hashtag (= Girl for President), there is the hope that, given an opportunity to learn and to speak, girls may become leaders of their schools and communities, or even business leaders and presidents of their countries.

2015 is an important year in that, in responding to issues such as poverty and the environment, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are to be established as international objectives. So that as many people as possible display an interest in the problems that confront girls worldwide, this SNS action aims to achieve a total of 1 million hashtags globally by “International Girls Day” (Sunday, October 11th.). Using your own imagination, we ask that you also try and express the wings with which each and every girl is equipped within your own SNS activities!
