För att fira den Internationella kvinnodagen och uppmärksamma vikten av att flickor utbildar sig, visar nättidningen Huffpost 60 foton av flickor runt om i världen, som är på väg till skolan. Väldigt häftigt att se alla bilder!
"Nelson Mandela once said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
And it’s true, education is one of the greatest resources the world has to offer. Unfortunately, young girls and women ― half of world’s the population ― are rarely given the same opportunities as boys to learn, study and succeed.
Globally, 65 million girls are not in school. Out of the 774 million people who are illiterate around the world, two-thirds are women. There are 33 million fewer girls in primary school than boys. And education really does save lives: If every woman around the globe had a primary and secondary education, childhood deaths would be cut in half."
