Here in the U.S., we have all kinds of songs, movies and sayings that celebrate girls and women. (Who run the world!?) But in other countries, “girl power” is often condemned, women’s rights are violated and females aren’t treated with the same kind of respect.

That’s why the United Nations declared October 11 International DAY OF THE GIRL It’s a movement that encourages global groups to “highlight, discuss, celebrate and ultimately advance” the lives of girls worldwide.

We’re celebrating girl power with these 10 songs to pump us all up:

“Run The World” – Beyonce

“Girl On Fire” – Alicia Keys

“Stronger” – Kelly Clarkson

“I Will Survive” – Gloria Gaynor

“Just A Girl” – No Doubt

“Respect” – Aretha Franklin

“Independent Women” – Destiny’s Child

“Can’t Hold Us Down” – Christina Aguilera

“Girls Just Want To Have Fun” – Cyndi Lauper

“I’m Every Woman” – Whitney Houston/Chaka Khan

Crank them up and do something positive for girls around the world!
