With the G20 Summit coming upon us- starting June 18th in Mexico City- and girls are taking the fate of the economic world into their hands. At the Girls20 Summit taking place today through Thursday in Mexico City, 21 girls representing each of the member countries are participating in a model G20 Summit, and are showing how girls and women can play a leading role in global economic development.
