G Day is a new global social movement anchored by day-long events that celebrate and empower girls aged 10-12 as they transition into adolescence. It is modelled on Canadian social impact success, We Day, and founder Madeleine Shaw hopes to see it replicated in cities globally. The first event for 300 girls on April 28 in Vancouver will include a range of speakers and activities. More than simply a celebration, the event also has a serious side: addressing body image, and the social conditions that underlie bullying.
