Today is celebrated each year on January 24 over the nation as National Girl Child Day. Its objective is to provide most extreme support and facilities to the girls of the nation. Another objective of National Girl Child Day is to raise mindfulness around segregation against girls. It is that girls have been confronting discrimination and savagery in every aspect of life for decades. Presently, it is time to grant them their due rights. The Government of India has brought a few acts and made a few corrections within the constitution to bring balance in society. Some of the most heart-touching and admirable tweets came up on social media.

National Girl Child is celebrated to improve the condition of girls in society. Women face many types of discrimination at their homes, workplaces and in daily lives. Indeed now, women confront sexual orientation segregation in many ways not as it were in the village but too within the cities. Several campaigns are organized over the nation to create awareness today to end up discrimination about girls in society.
