11 Mic Drop Moments from the 2019 Girls Speak Out Event at the United Nations

Today did not disappoint in real life or on Twitter! We celebrated the 2019 International Day of the Girl by taking over the Today Show plaza and the United Nations to elevate the voices of girls all over the world. Together, we can ensure that the fight for girls’ rights is #WithGirlsForGirls! Ten of our country’s most outstanding young female activists—the 2019 National Gold Award Girl Scouts—were in attendance along with delegates representing girls from around the world, delivering some “mic drop moments.” The Twittersphere also blessed us with an abundance of phenomenal tweets from the event.

A special 'thank you' goes to Microsoft for collaborating with us to inspire more girls to pursue their passions and to our National Gold Award Girl Scout scholarship funders, Kappa Delta Foundation, Arconic Foundation, and Susan Bulkeley Butler, for investing in girl leaders.

Microsoft is a premier sponsor of the 2019 National Gold Award Girl Scout celebration, a night dedicated to honoring the accomplishments of ten Girl Scouts who created innovative and sustainable solutions for today’s most pressing issues. On October 11, at 7:15 pm EST, Microsoft will host the event at its flagship store in New York City and livestream it to its other stores across the country.
