Girlforce: Unscripted and Unstoppable, that's the theme for this year's International Day of the Girl and across the world we're seeing girls stand up and speak out about the issues they are passionate about.

Here in Australia we have some amazing young women who are using their voice to help call for solutions to a very dry problem... the drought.

We speak to two 16 year old girls who are fighting to save Australia's agricultural community
