International Girl Child Day or International Day of the Girl Child is marked every year on October 11. The aim is to empower women, provide more opportunity for girls, and increasing the awareness of gender inequality faced by girls.

PeeCee is recently making headlines for her memoir Unfinished. A few days back, she shared the cover of the book and penned a heartfelt note. The post was captioned as, ”Ironically, I named this memoir years before I started writing it. Having been a public person now for 20 years, with so much life to live and a long list of things to check off my list personally and professionally, I am very much #Unfinished. BUT the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed. In doing so I’ve realized that being “unfinished” has deeper meaning for me, and has in fact been one of the most common threads of my life”.
