Did you know? In some times and places, girls were not allowed to go to school, even if they really wanted to. This is still true in some places today. Many activists work hard to win the right to go to school for these girls.

But in most parts of the world, girls are encouraged to learn all they can. In fact, more girls are needed in STEM education and careers - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

What is your favorite subject in school? When you draw this schoolgirl, you can write the name of that subject on her book - it can be her favorite, too!
