Importance of Social Media in Marketing Media Mix

As of April 2012, social media accounted for 7.4 percent of the marketing budgets of American companies. A survey released from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business indicated that social media share will  rise to 19.5 percent of company marketing budgets within five years. This dramatic increase in funding for social media marketing among corporations signifies that entire careers can be based on the effective use of social media vehicles, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin for businesses.

Father's Day - Third Sunday - June


Father's Day - 20 June 2021


Father's Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd.  Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, William Jackson Smart was a Civil War veteran and as a single parent, he raised his six children.  After hearing a sermon about  Mother's Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. She wanted it to happen on June 5, her father's birthday, but the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

In the 1920s, Dodd went to Chicago to study in the Art Institute of Chicago and the event  faded into relative obscurity. In the 1930s Dodd returned to Spokane and started promoting the celebration again and raised the awareness at a national level. She took the help of those trade groups that supply men's gift items, for example the manufacturers of ties and tobacco pipes. In 1938,  the Father's Day Council, founded by the New York Associated Men's Wear Retailers came into existence to consolidate and systematize the commercial promotion. Americans resisted the holiday during a few decades, but the trade groups  kept promoting it and eventually succeeded. By the mid-1980s the Father's Council stated that Father's Day sales are only next to Christmas Day sales for all the men's gift-oriented industries.

 In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

International Day of the Girl Child - 11 October




Background

On December 19, 2011, United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

Girls face discrimination and violence every day across the world. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.



2018


Theme:  “With Her: A Skilled Girl Force”


Educate your girl child. Make her a skilled person.
Many girls are excelling in number of fields. No field of work or effort is beyond her reach.
Believe in your girl child. Provide her the best education and skills.
You will be benefited as a parent. You will have more happiness in your life. You will have more satisfaction as a person who fulfilled his or her obligation to the life process and purpose.


2016

Theme:   “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: A Global Girl Data Movement”


There are 1.1 billion girls today, a powerful constituency for shaping a sustainable world that’s better for everyone. They are brimming with talent and creativity. But their dreams and potential are often thwarted by discrimination, violence and lack of equal opportunities. There are glaring gaps in data and knowledge about the specific needs and challenges that girls face.

What gets counted, gets done. The theme for this year’s International Day of the Girl Child, on 11 October, “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: A Global Girl Data Movement”, is a call for action for increased investment in collecting and analyzing girl-focused, girl-relevant and sex-disaggregated data. One year into the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, improving data on girls and addressing the issues that are holding them back is critical for fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals

One such issue that is standing in the way of girls’ progress is child marriage. The data is daunting—one in three girls in developing countries (except China) get married before they turn 18. Girls who are child brides miss out on education, are more vulnerable to physical and sexual violence, and bear children before they are physically or emotionally prepared. The cycle of violence that begins in girlhood, carries over into womanhood and across generations. The 2030 Agenda must address their needs and unlock their potential.

UN Women works around the world to empower women and girls and raise awareness on their rights, advocate for the adoption and implementation of laws and policies that prohibit and prevent child marriage, and mobilize communities against the practice.

On the International Day of the Girl Child, we stand with the global community to support girls’ progress everywhere. Let girls be girls.

2015 Theme: The Power of the Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030


This year, as the international community assesses progress under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) since their implementation in 2000 and sets goals to be achieved by 2030, girls born at the turn of the millennium have reached adolescence, and the generation of girls born this year will be adolescents in 2030. As we reflect on the achievements of the past 15 years and plan sustainable development goals for the next 15, it is an opportune time to consider the importance of social, economic, and political investment in the power of adolescent girls as fundamental to breaking the intergenerational transmission of poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination and to achieving equitable and sustainable development outcomes.

Adolescent girls have the right to a safe, educated, and healthy life, not only during these critical formative years, but also as they mature into women. If effectively supported during the adolescent years, girls have the potential to change the world – both as the empowered girls of today and as tomorrow’s workers, mothers, entrepreneurs, mentors, household heads, and political leaders. An investment in realising the power of adolescent girls upholds their rights today and promises a more equitable and prosperous future, one in which half of humanity is an equal partner in solving the problems of climate change, political conflict, economic growth, disease prevention, and global sustainability.

Over the last 15 years, the global community has made significant progress in improving the lives of girls during early childhood. In 2015, girls in the first decade of life are more likely to enrol in primary school, receive key vaccinations, and are less likely to suffer from health and nutrition problems than were previous generations. However, there has been insufficient investment in addressing the challenges girls face when they enter the second decade of their lives. This includes obtaining quality secondary and higher education, avoiding child marriage, receiving information and services related to puberty and reproductive health, and protecting themselves against unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease and gender-based violence.

As the global community launches the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for implementation over the next 15 years, it is a good time to recognise the achievements made in supporting young girls, while at the same time aspiring to support the current and upcoming generation of adolescent girls, to truly fulfil their potential as key actors in achieving a sustainable and equitable world. In recognition of the importance of investing in adolescent girls’ empowerment and rights, both today and in the future, the theme of International Day of the Girl Child for 2015 is: The Power of the Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030.

UN agencies, Member States, civil society organizations, and private sector stakeholders are called on to commit to putting adolescent girls at the centre of sustainable development efforts by making the following critical investments in their present and future:

Invest in high quality education, skills, training, access to technology and other learning initiatives that prepare girls for life, jobs, and leadership.
Invest in health and nutrition suitable to the adolescent years, including puberty education, menstrual hygiene management, and sexual and reproductive health education and services.
Promote zero tolerance against physical, mental, and sexual violence.
Enact and consistently implement social, economic, and policy mechanisms to combat early marriage and female genital mutilation.
Invest in the creation and maintenance of social and public spaces for civic and political engagement, creativity and talent enhancement.
Promote gender-responsive legislation and policies across all areas especially for adolescent girls who are disabled, vulnerable and marginalized, and victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation.
The commitment by the global community to realising the potential of adolescent girls will directly translate into the girls as powerful and positive change agents for their own empowerment, for advancing gender equality and for the sustainable advancement of their nations.
