ICYMI: Beyoncé’s “Freedom” is This Year’s Day of the Girl Anthem

Yesterday was Unicef‘s fifth annual International Day of the Girl, a cause that spotlights how critical it is for girls to grow up in this world without fear, abuse and disregard. In celebration of the day’s significance, the charity organization shared some endearingly fierce girlhood in all its pint-sized glory. A video of young girls flexing their dance abilities and lip syncing Beyoncé‘s “Freedom” visually represents the birth of confidence that comes with young girlhood and what comes from it. It’s far too late to respect women when girls are just as deserving of understanding, support and safety.

Investing in girls helps them build better lives and create a more peaceful and prosperous world for ALL,” Unicef shared in a tweet. Watch the girls slay in the video above.
