“So much is changing, all that is certain is you haven’t seen the best of me,” reads a line from Keisha Thompson’s poem, Yet.
The 25-year-old writer and performer from Manchester has written it for International Day of the Girl.
A video with 13 girls from eight countries reading the poem has been made by Plan International charity.
It includes girls from Nicaragua, Thailand and Sierra Leone.
Keisha tells Newsbeat she had a clear message.
“Girls and women are here, they’re improving their position in the world, they’re working on their rights.
“If someone watches this video and agrees with what’s being said then it might give them the courage to analyse their own situation, ask a question, take a bit of personal responsibility in making something happen in their lives.”
Keisha thinks that arts and poetry “definitely have a place” in political movements and campaigns.
