PANAMA CITY, October 11, 2017 - In Latin America and the Caribbean, millions of girls face situations of inequality, discrimination and violence. Faced with this harsh reality, the young American actress and singer of Peruvian descent, Isabela Moner, has joined forces with UNICEF to empower girls and call for action to eradicate gender inequality in the region.

"Millions of girls and adolescents in the region are isolated, discriminated and abused every day," says Moner, addressing girls and adolescents across Latin America and the Caribbean. "We want to tell you loud and clear that you are not alone and that together, we are committed to changing the rigid patterns that still prevail in society, so that all of you can become an unstoppable force for change for the region."

Moner voices the Spanish and English versions of the new and powerful video that UNICEF launches today as part of the International Day of the Girl, entitled "I am all that you see me as and so much more."

The video seeks to appeal to governments, educational communities, health centres, civil society, families and communities to promote the empowerment of girls and adolescents to make their dreams come true and enjoy integral development.

The 16-year-old star of Transformers: The Last Knight and the upcoming film Sicario 2: Soldado, has previously collaborated with UNICEF in Peru, visiting programs on empowerment and adolescent participation with the actor and national ambassador of UNICEF Peru, Marco Zunino.
 
Empowerment, or the process of strengthening knowledge and capacity to exercise power and freedom, information and support to make decisions and act to make them a reality, is a key strategy for overcoming gender inequalities affecting millions of girls and adolescents in Latin America and the Caribbean.
