Every Girl Has a Right to Access Education. What Action Will You Take to Keep Girls in School?

Every year the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence Campaign coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership heightens awareness of gender-based violence as a human rights violation across the globe. The global campaign is focusing on the right to education in situations of violent conflict and relative peace, and in various education settings.

At the regional level, the GBV Prevention Network will focus on the retention of women & girls in the education system. The campaign will explore how discrimination and experiences of violence constrain girls’ ability to remain in and/or benefit from the current education system.  Members of the Network will urge leaders and community members to ensure girls remain in school and complete their education.
