Policy Brief

Ensure Equitable and Quality Education at All Levels

OVERVIEW

In two-thirds of all countries, girls now enroll in primary school at the same rate as boys. However, global statistics mask persistent inequalities that still exist in many parts of the world, where girls are far more likely to be out of school. Hard realities such as poverty, school fees, travel distance, and the absence of menstrual hygiene management facilities at school limit girls’ access to education, especially at the post-primary level. As the development community embraces the new Sustainable Development Goals, improving access to quality education and training opportunities for girls and women needs to be at the forefront of the movement towards gender equity.
