Today is the 11th of October marks International day of the Girl Child, and this year’s theme is ‘emPOWER’. There are over 1.1billion girls in the world. Just think of the potential that represents, but put simply girls are treated differently. 

今天是10月11日国际女童日,今年的主题是“让女性变得强大”。全球有超过11亿的女孩子。想想这么庞大的数字代表着什么,但实际上女孩子在遭受着不公平的对待。


Every ten minutes, somewhere in the world, one of those girls dies as a result of violence. They are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school, abducted, forced into marriage, subject to exploitation, violence and abuse. They face femal genital mutilation disproportionately marginalised and are discriminated against.

每十分钟,在世界上的某一个地方,会有一个女孩因为暴力而死去。这些不幸的事情发生在辍学的女孩身上的可能性是旁人的2.5倍,被拐卖或被强迫结婚,遭受剥削,暴力和虐待。她们面对的是生殖器割除,被大规模边缘化,以及不平等的性别歧视。


As a Special Envoy for Gender Equality, I stand with these girls across the world today and every day to say that this discrimination must stop. It is simply not right that in 2017, negative attitudes, norms and harmful practices against girls still exist.

作为性别平等特使,我今天以及今后的每一天都和世界上所有的女孩站在一起来呼吁:停止这种性别歧视!仅像2017年那样是错误的,消极的态度,规范标准和有害的做法依然存在。


The world is moving and changes are taking place, but not quickly enough. So what are we doing about this? Well I believe that access to education for girls is vital. Globally 31 million girls of primary school age have never been to school. Education ensures participation in later life, It help girls to make their own decisions about their lives and helps them to achieve their dreams and aspirations.

世界虽然在发展变化,但不够迅速。所以对此我们应该怎样做呢?在我看来对女孩教育的普及是至关重要的。全球有3100万的适龄女孩从来没有上过学。教育可以为她们把握今后的人生提供保证,还可以帮助她们选择自己的人生,实现自己的梦想和愿望。


We also know that educating girls contributes to a more stable peaceful and prosperous world and that’s why the UK government through UK Aid is helping 11 million children around the world including 6.5 million girls to gain a decent education between 2015 and 2020 and we are providing funding to various projects to help girls live free from violence and exploitation from FGM and child& early marriage.

我们清楚对女性的教育有助于世界更加稳定,和谐,繁荣。这也是英国政府为什么要通过英国救援机构在2015到2020年间帮助全球1100万的孩子,这其中包括650万的女孩,去接受良好的教育。我们也为不同的项目提供资金,去帮助女孩免受生殖器切割和童婚这样的暴力和剥削。


We do this because it’s the right thing to do of course, but these girls, all 1.1 billion of them are our future. They are our future leaders. They are our teachers, our lawyers, our doctors, mothers, aunts, future parliamentarians, presidents and prime ministers, but it takes everyone to make a difference.

我们做这些事情不仅仅是因为它是正确的,更重要的原因是,这些女孩——11亿的女孩是我们的未来。她们将是未来的领导者。她们将是未来的老师,律师,医生,她们也会成为一名母亲,阿姨,她们更可能成为国会议员,总统,首相,但这一切的一切需要我们每一个人的努力。


So join me today in showing your support for every girl around the world and let’s aim for future where everyone women and men, girls and boys are empowered to live their lives to their full potential. Thank you.

所以请和我一起去支持世界上的每一个女孩,让我们携手把世界变成一个所有人都可以把自己的潜能发挥到极致的地方。谢谢大家!
