Girls, Education and Development


Date of publication:  01 Jan 2003 Authors:  Carol Bellamy Publisher:  United Nation Children's Fund Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

Millions of young girls never attend school at all, millions more never complete their education (…). These millions of girls slip easily to the margins of our societies (…) with fewer choices in their lives and less hope for the future. As they grow into women, they are ill-prepared to participate fully in the political, social and economic development of their communities. They – and their children in turn – are at higher risk of poverty, HIV/AIDS, sexual exploitation, violence and abuse.
