Game of Thrones actresses Natalie Dormer and Lena Headey join singer Beverley Knight to support 'Because I am a Girl' campaign.

Face up to Violence Against Girls

The stars have taken a stand against violence towards young women- and the images will give you chills.

Beverley, Lena and Natalie appear with painted faces with the words of real girls who have experienced unthinkable traumas. 'Trying to control me', 'Ignored my screams', 'Bear the scars' and 'Violation' are just some of the heart-breaking words that appear.

Face up to Violence Against Girls

The 'Because I am a Girl' campaign aims to ensure that all girls can live safe from violence, go to school, marry who they want when they want, and have their voices heard.

They focus on ending female genital mutilation (FGM) and preventing child marriage in a generation- but they need your help to do so.

Face up to Violence Against Girls

An alarming 170,000 girls and women have been affected by FGM in the UK and every two seconds another girl is at risk of being forced into marriage, some as young as five years old.

As many as 3.5 million girls worldwide and 65,000 girls in the UK are at risk of FGM, and a disturbing 130 million girls and women are living with the consequences of FGM worldwide- change needs to happen today.

To get involved in the campaign, you can create your own 'Face Up' app by visiting which you can digitally place the words 'I'm putting girls right where they can't be ignored' on a photo of your own face to share on social media platforms, along with the hashtag #FaceUp.
