The National Women’s League of the People’s National Movement (PNM) has marked International Day of the Girl Child.

"Girls are indeed unstoppable and are vital to the progress of Trinidad and Tobago. As the League, we must embrace our girls and motivate them to recognise their true potential. Today, we wish all the girls of Trinidad and Tobago a Happy International Day of the Girl Child!," the release said.

Each year, the day is celebrated on October 11 to address the issues girls encounter and to promote empowerment.

According to UN Secretary General António Guterres, “Girls can be powerful agents of change, and nothing should keep them from participating fully in all areas of life”.

This year’s theme is Girl Force: Unscripted and Unstoppable and we must continue to empower our girls.
