Children2013On December 19, 2011 the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring 11 Oct. as the International Day of the Girl Child—for the purpose of recognizing girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. This year’s focus is on ‘innovating for girls education.’

The UN is seeking to ’empower’ women and girls with education, technology and financial aid—to be catalysts for change and development in society. The problem is the UN’s vision is more material and disruptive than holistic, guided by corporate interests and activists (algos & egos), that will likely do more harm than good for individuals, families and society.
