Girls' rights are human rights : An in-depth study of the status of girls in the international human rights framework

Anne-Claire Blok, Hannah Pehle
Plan International


Girls continue to be the largest excluded group in the world. They face discrimination and abuse simply for being young and female, and additional circumstances and contexts can increase their marginalisation. Violence against girls can occur at birth, or even before. Gender discriminatory practices, such as early marriage and female genital mutilation, further impede girls’ development. Adolescent girls are often taken from school before completing secondary level, because sons are seen as a better investment in the family’s future. Gendered stereotypes around domestic work also lead to girls being removed from school in order to contribute to household and agricultural chores. Girls who stay in school often face poor conditions, gender-insensitive environments, and gender bias in school materials.

That is why Plan International is rallying those in power, civil society organisations, and young activists— especially girls—to join the movement for girls’ rights. Our new 5-year Global Strategy, launched in 2017, is designed to deliver significant change for girls and boys, with a special emphasis on gender equality.
