Celebrities, World Leaders Unite To #BringBackOurGirls

Posted: Updated:

Nearly a month after Islamists militants staged a mass kidnapping in the Nigerian state of Borno, more than 200 girls who were captured are still missing. The abductions as well as the so far limited efforts to rescue the girls have sparked outrage around the world and caused world leaders, international organizations, celebrities and activist to unify over one demand: #BringBackOurGirls.

"Access to education is a basic right and an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls. We must stand up to terrorism," former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted on May 4. "It's time to #BringBackOurGirls," said actress Reese Witherspoon on Thursday.
