It’s high time girls around the world got some extra recognition, and Facebook is working to help make that happen.

Facebook has created a special profile picture frame in honor of Oct. 11, which marks International Day of the Girl — a day meant to inspire people to work toward advancing the rights and future opportunities of young women while celebrating their talents and accomplishments.

When users log on to the network Wednesday, users are prompted with a “Today’s girls, Tomorrow’s Leaders” notification, which explains International Day of the Girl. It will also present the option to add a celebratory frame to their profile pictures.

This year’s frame adds five illustrations of young girls to the picture, showing them peeking over the edges with big smiles on their faces.

To add the frame manually, simply go to Facebook’s profile picture frame page and select the frame you want. Then adjust the length of time you’d like it to be featured for and click “Use as Profile Picture.”

Facebook also offered a frame on International Day of the Girl last year, which was a bottom border doodle of a girl drawn on lined paper.

In the past Facebook has unveiled profile filters and frames to celebrate holidays and other notable moments, like the LGBTQ Pride rainbow filter that was added after the U.S. Supreme Court ended gay marriage bans in a historic ruling.
