Discrimination and violence against girls and violations of their human rights still happen till today. The United Nations felt a need to raise awareness of the challenges that millions of girls face every day. In December 2011, the UN declared that it would annually observe the International Day of the Girl Child, starting from October 11, 2012. Just as Violence against women is a global course to the United Nations’ Community, the International organizations and working groups, violence against the girl child has much rooted concerns in the global pursuit on the Future Women Want. This calls for more serious commitment that in the end the future women want will include total eradication of all violence against the girl child that in the end what the girl child wants is equality between boys and girls.
