11 October is marked as the International day of the girl where every girl child is celebrated, loved and appreciated. This year, Refinery29 and Girls Who Code teamed up together to start an online campaign to celebrate girls across the world, irrespective of colour or nationality.

Thirteen year old Jordan has authored a book and also been vocal about inclusion and the disability space. Her story has been widely shared on social media and #MarchForSisterhood celebrates this young woman.
I was born with one hand and that gives me the ability to see the world differently. #MarchForSisterhood because I feel that fire to speak up and help others-Jordan Reeves, Amputee.
The campaign aims to bring together girls to speak up about anything that is worth relevant in today’s world. This can be done through photographs or videos. Basically, the message is to let the world know that girls can create wonders together.
Priya Bhargav, a wheelchair user, is a beauty pageant winner and motivational speaker.
“We generally find jealousy amongst girls which leads to hatred. People must stop harming each other for the sake of being number one in the illusionary race and hence losing a lot of energy. They waste their potentials which can be used for their own well-being. #MarchForSisterhood brings a concept of togetherness, cooperation and winning together. It relieves every girl from the feeling of being lonely, unwanted or left alone. I believe unity brings more prosperity and harmony. No one is here to stay forever. So why not be together and live life to the fullest”, says Bhargav.
