Stop the clock. Stop the setback.
For millions of girls around the world, the future is already written. They may be forced into marriage. They may not finish school, even once classes restart after the pandemic. They could experience violence, and maybe even female genital mutilation. They may lose access to sexual and reproductive health education and services, making unplanned pregnancy more likely — and more deadly. They could get sick without access to clean water, struggling to manage their periods each month. And they won’t know what it’s like to write their own story or chase their own dreams.
COVID-19 is setting back decades of progress for gender equality. Incidences of child marriage, trafficking and gender-based violence are all increasing. Girls’ futures are being set back.
