At only 13 Shirin has stepped up when many twice her age won't. The power of the citizen journalist. Thank you Shirin for your efforts on behalf of children everywhere.
Shirin Aktar was just 13 years old -- the eldest girl in a poor, conservative family in Bangladesh -- when her parents decided it was time for her to get married. But Shirin had other plans. She enlisted the help of her fellow members of "Child Journalists," a group of local boys and girls who raise awareness about children's rights. They approached village elders, religious leaders and local business-owners who agreed to talk to her parents, and with the help of +UNICEF's Adolescent Empowerment project, Shirin was able to avoid the fate of many of her female friends and relatives.

This Day in History: On this day in 1981, President Reagan nominated Sandra Day O'Connor to be the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court. She served until Jan. 31, 2006, when she retired to spend more time with her husband, who had Alzheimer's. After retiring, she founded iCivics to provide young Americans the knowledge to participate in democracy and has filled in as a substitute federal appellate judge.
