Looking for some badass female protagonists? Steam has you covered. Today is the International Day of the Girl Child and Valve is celebrating with a Steam sale on a few of the best gaming experiences with girls at the forefront.

The theme for this year's celebration, as seen on the UN website, is With Her: A Skilled GirlForce:

Today's generation of girls are preparing to enter a world of work that is being transformed by innovation and automation. Educated and skilled workers are in great demand, but roughly a quarter of young people – most of them female – are currently neither employed or in education or training.

Of the 1 billion young people – including 600 million adolescent girls – that will enter the workforce in the next decade, more than 90% of those living in developing countries will work in the informal sector, where low or no pay, abuse and exploitation are common.

On 11 October, International Day of the Girl, we are working alongside all girls to expand existing learning opportunities, chart new pathways and calling on the global community to rethink how to prepare them for a successful transition into the world of work.

Under the theme, With Her: A Skilled GirlForce, International Day of the Girl will mark the beginning of a year-long effort to bring together partners and stakeholders to advocate for, and draw attention and investments to, the most pressing needs and opportunities for girls to attain skills for employability.

Steam's Internation Day of the Girl Child celebration is a look at seven different games focused on girls. Airheart - Tales of Broken Wings, Tacoma, Her Story, Gone Home, The Next Big Thing, Transistor, and What Remains of Edith Finch can all be had at steep discounts of up to 80%.
