11 October marks the UN International Day of the Girl. The 1.1 billion girls across the world girls face a myriad of challenges – from harmful social norms to lack of educational opportunities. They also have less access to information, communication technology and resources, such as the internet where the global gender gap is growing.
To celebrate International Day of the Girl and highlight some of the ways girls themselves are challenging the status quo, we are sharing the following short list of curated communication for development related publications and thinking relating to girls’ development from our Resources section, which we hope will be useful.
