Female Literacy: Global Scenario
According to UNESCO estimates, globally 129 million girls are out of school, including 32 million of primary school age, 30 million of lower-secondary school age, and 67 million of upper-secondary school age. In countries affected by conflict, girls are more than twice as likely to be out of school than girls living in non-affected countries.
Gender parity in elementary education has only been reached in 49% of the world's nations. The gender disparity grows at the secondary level, where just 24% of countries have achieved gender parity in upper secondary education and 42% in lower school.
Impact of Female Education
By supporting girls' education, communities, nations, and the world are transformed. Girls who acquire an education are more likely to lead healthy, fulfilling lives and are less likely to marry early. They create better futures for themselves and their family, earn higher wages, and take part in decisions that most directly affect them.
Education for girls boosts economies and lowers inequality. It helps create more secure, resilient societies where everyone has the chance to reach their full potential, including boys and men.
