Why do we celebrate the Day of the Girl Child?
It is because we want to highlight the challenges that the girls are facing, and one of those challenges is that the girls are considered physically weak compared to boys.
Girls are usually not asked to do stuff like lifting heavy things (which is mainly considered to be boys’ job) because they are thought to be physically weak.
Girls are also not encouraged to play certain sports because people think that women are not supposed to be muscular but instead be feminine and pretty.
Media also plays an important role by promoting girls’ physical beauty rather than highlighting their skills.
Moreover, this is also a fact that women get less scholarships for sports education, and they are provided with less experienced and trained coaches, and other sports facilities, which discourages them to join this field.
I think girls and boys are equally skilled in all fields. Therefore, it is very important to focus on girls’ and boys’ skills than following what people say and give them equal chance to show their physical abilities.
