Women's Empowerment through Girls' Education

The GWP is dedicated to transforming the world through the education of girls.  In order to create a world in which not only fundamental rights, but unlimited opportunities for leadership, become a reality for all women, a full education must become available for all girls. The importance of girls’ education has been well documented in recent research, as has the link between the level of girls’ education in given localities and the respective economic well-being of the people who live there. In a very real sense, the well-being of entire communities depends on how well the girls who live there are educated. It is these communities that give rise to our global community, and it all begins with education.  

Our latest work on this issue comes from the Mythbusting: Women and Witchcraft blog in which we examine the underpinnings of modern witch killings across the globe.
