“Every five minutes, a girl dies as a result of violence…”
In case you missed it, Beyoncé dropped a very empowering and highly anticipated visual to “Freedom” on The International Day of the Girl Child. You may have heard “Freedom” a few times throughout the day on the new Apple Watch Series 2 Live Bright commercial. According to un.org, International Day of the Girl Child is a day (October 11) sat aside to articulate and provide awareness of what girls face day-to-day while making empowering statements. The United Nations website also states, “girls are a source of power, energy and creativity..”, wouldn’t you agree? The hit single “Freedom” is a track pulled from her sixth Grammy-award winning studio album, Lemonade.
In the video, you can catch affirmations of hope and absolutely emotionally-stirring statistics from human trafficking to HIV. The “Run The World (Girls)” artist stated, “Girls around the world are fighting for their freedom every day…Chime for Change and The Global Goals by taking action for #FreedomForGirls now: www.globalgoals.org/dayofthegirl.”
Beyonce’ isn’t a stranger to female empowerment nor having a huge heart for making kindred donations to a human rights cause.
