Fathers empowering daughters

Chelsea Clinton, Richard Branson and more

In celebration of Father's Day on Sunday, global organisation, G(irls)20 have launched 'Fathers empowering daughters' - an initiative which aims to encourage a new generation of female leaders.

The campaign will feature the likes of Richard Branson, Shakira, Chelsea Clinton, Ziauddin Yousafzai (activist, Malala's father) and other well-known fathers and daughters - all appearing in a series of videos to talk about the sense of empowerment they have received from the paternal figures in their lives, and vice versa.
