In advance of the G20 Leaders meeting in Australia, 23 delegates of G(irls)20 met at the Sydney Opera House to offer their advice to the rulers on behalf of the 3.5 billion girls in women in the world.

When world leaders meet in Australia in November for the G20 Summit, they will discuss issues that affect the global economy and individual’s personal success. But will they talk about things that matter to girls?

To give the adult participants a sense of what is important to young women, G(irls)20 created an advice video. Zainab Ahmed Alabdrabalnabi from Saudi Arabia, one of the 24 women featured in the video, said "Engaging women in growth sectors like oil, gas and energy and minerals will lead to innovation."

From mandatory high school education to access to technology in rural areas, the Australian delegates of the G(irls)20 summer gathering share their vision for a better world.
