No society can thrive when half the population is unable to reach their full potential.
Yet in 2016, girls and young women throughout the world continue to be denied the same rights as boys and men. As a result, millions of girls are unable to access education, make important life decisions, and feel safe from gender-based violence and harrassment.
In order to be equal we must ensure all girls are seen, heard and counted. That’s why Plan International is leading a global movement to highlight issues of gender inequality, and create a world where girls everywhere have the opportunity to learn, lead, decide and thrive.
