‘A New era for girls: Taking stock on 25 years of progress’ report released

‘A New era for girls: Taking stock on 25 years of progress’ is a report recently unveiled by UNICEF, Plan International and United Nations Women.

The report reveals that though the rate of drop-outs for girls in schools has decreased from 20% to 13.5% from 2008 to 2018, a greater empowerment has not taken place. It also states that many girls still face an unequal violent environment and one in every 20 girls in the age group of 15-20 has experienced rape, both within and outside marriage.
