All girls deserve the same opportunities, no matter where they're from or what their economic position is; all girls have human rights that need to be respected. Florien van Weerelt (15) has lived in six countries already, and if there's one thing that she has learned from her travels, it is that inequality is truly a global issue. Florien has recently become involved with Girl Up, a United Nations campaign that mobilizes girls to raise awareness about the plight of girls around the world and to raise funds for UN programs. This iBook explores her motives for starting a Girl Up club at her school and summarizes the struggles that girls face all around the world, whether related to abuse, education or child marriage.
