Girls’ Education and Women’s Equality: How to Get More out of the World’s Most Promising Investment

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jun 02, 2022 | Center for Global Development, Shelby Carvalho, David Evans,

Across low-income countries, girls are five to ten percentage points less likely to be enrolled in high school than boys. In many countries, including Afghanistan, Benin, Haiti, and Papua New Guinea, fewer than one in five girls completes high school. Although governments and donors champion the principle, many girls still do not achieve a full, quality education, and education all too often fails to deliver equal economic opportunity. In their report for the Center for Global Development, Shelby Carvalho  and David Evans, however, suggest that there is hope. Drawing on the experiences of countries that have made gains at-scale in both girls’ education and women’s economic equality, they show how, cultures, societies and the international community can help girls to get the most out of the world’s most promising investment.
