The #Girl2Leader Campaign 2022 aims to encourage and empower girls to become leaders, not just in politics but in everyday life, work, and society in general. This campaign is being held in collaboration with ‘The Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society, Business, and Professional Women’ and Women Political Leaders (Tag) and highlights the nine articles of the BPW Charter of the Girls’ Rights.
#Girl2leader was launched in 2017 by Women Political Leaders in the European Parliament on the International Day of the Girl Child, under the patronage of the then President of Malta, Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, who still champions the initiative.
