Fly the Flag for Gender Equality is a series of flag installations organised by GirlGuiding NZ to coincide with 'International Day of the Girl' on 11 October.
Girl Guides, schools and community groups across the country have designed flags to represent their thoughts on issues facing girls and equality today. The flags are being displayed in main centres across NZ for the public to view and reflect on the thoughts of our youth on this subject.
“As a global organisation, GirlGuiding NZ is committed to giving girls a voice, and bringing an awareness of issues facing them into local communities. We believe in gender equality, and want to do all we can to make this world an equal one.”
It is a fantastic time to be a part of New Zealand’s premium empowerment organisation for girls and young women. If you, or someone you know, is interested in joining go to www.girlguidingnz.org.nz/join-us.
