Beyoncé Shares Special “Freedom” Video Honouring International Day Of The Girl

By Joshua David

Beyoncé on Wednesday shared a short film that was produced in conjunction with Salma Hayek’s Chime for Change, and The Global Goals, in honor of the International Day of the Girl.  The short film featured a group of fierce, charismatic young girls from different regions lips syncing and dancing to her 2016 song “Freedom.”

Salma Hayek’s Chime for Change initiative and The Global Goals delivers some heartbreaking statistics over images of the young girls: 71% of human trafficking victims are girls, while 130 million girls are out of school.  Watch the empowering video below, and visit The Global Goals’ #FreedomForGirls page to support one of the many organizations aiding young girls around the world. The clip’s director MJ Delaney told Glamour on Wednesday that she wanted the video to have a tougher tone this time around. “Happy, smiley joy doesn’t really cut the mustard now,” she said. “A lot has happened globally, and I wanted to do something defiant and angry and demanding.”
