Celebrity allies help girls #RewriteHerStory! | Plan International Skip to main content

This International Day of the Girl, not only did #GirlsTakeover the media and entertainment industries, they also dominated celebrities' social media! 

Girls' call for an end to sexism and discrimination on-screen was heeded by some fierce allies. From Reese Witherspoon to Naomi Campbell, Teen Vogue to Jameela Jamil, the global, girl-led Girls Get Equal campaign caught the eye of women at the top of media, modelling, movies and music.

These women know that fashion shoots, music videos and films affect the way the world sees girls - and how they see themselves.

So this October 11th they stood in solidarity with girls by calling out the tired tropes and stereotypes that have been holding them back, and demanding better representation for the next generation.

Here are just some of the highlights.  

Activist Thokozile from Zambia took over Teen Vogue's insta stories to demand better representation for girls on-screen and in the media.
