The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) says that millions of girls are being forced out of school because of poverty, the threat of sexual violence and poor-quality schools – despite improved enrolment rates.
It their new report, the GCE and RESULTS call for governments and international financial institutions to redress the balance and give girls a fair deal.
GCE president, Camilla Croso, points out that, "Our world must no longer tolerate the constant violation of women's and girl's rights to an education. Not only has the 2005 Education For All goal of gender parity in enrolment been grossly missed, but the 2015 gender equality goal is sadly way off track."
