Ottawa, Oct 11 (IBNS): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday shared an image of her daughter Ella-Grace Margaret on social media on the occasion of the international day of the girl.

 

In the picture, which has been shared on Twitter, Ella could be seen sitting on a chair, probably which belongs to her father, while Trudeau is standing at a corner.

Trudeau tweeted the picture saying, "Today is about our daughters, granddaughters, sisters & nieces. It’s about making sure they grow up in a world where their voices are heard & they have the support they need to chase down their dreams. "

Praising girls, the Prime Minister issued a statement where he said: "In Canada and around the globe, girls are changing their communities and shaping their societies for the better. They show us that when girls have the support and opportunities to achieve their highest potential, they transform our world.

"Yet even in 2018, girls across the board face higher rates of violence, poverty, discrimination, and other systemic barriers that hold them back. It’s long past time for that to change. The activists on the frontlines of that fight are girls – demanding their rights be respected and that their voices be heard."

Trudeau also emphasised how "women in the workforce have been one of the most powerful sources of growth in recent decades".

His statement reads, "In Canada, women in the workforce have been one of the most powerful sources of growth in recent decades – but we need to do more to increase girls’ access to career guidance, mentorship, and networks they need to transition from school to work.

"The Government of Canada is expanding training and education programs for women and girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, and helping girls enter careers in skilled trades through the new Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women. These measures will help reduce gender gaps and build a more prosperous future for all Canadians."
