Take Our Daughters to Work Day

Fourth Thursday in April
Sponsored by the Ms. Foundation for Women since 1993, this is a day dedicated to girls between the ages of nine and 15, who are encouraged to go to work with their parents, grandparents, or other adults in their lives. The purpose is to support girls' development and to help them stay focused on their future during adolescence. Spending a day at work with an adult, it is hoped, will increase girls' interest in planning their own education and careers, and will inspire educators, employers, and parents to redress the inequalities in job opportunities for women.
