Unesco, Number of Girls Not Going to School Will Double that of Boys

This happens despite all the efforts made and the progress achieved in 20 years, the Unesco highlighted through a statement.

We will never reach the Sustainable Development Goals if we fail to overcome discrimination and poverty already crippling the lives of girls and women from generation to generation, said the director general of Unesco, Irina Bokova.

She also stressed that ‘we must work at all levels, from the base up to world leaders to make equity and integration the axes of any policy, so that all girls, whatever their circumstances, go to school, pursue studies and become emancipated citizens’.
