COVID-19 is worsening gender inequalities and putting progress for girls at risk. By New year's Eve, half a million girls may be forced into child marriage as a result of the econimic crisis, and one million may face the risks of early pregnancy – already the leading cause of death for 15-19 years globally. For the first time in 25 years, girls face the prospect of seeing progress reversing instead of accelerating. 

But there is hope for girls around the world. We know more than ever about how to drive equality with and for girls, creating more locally-driven and transformative ways of working to address inequality. 

 

Women and girls’ empowerment is key to building a more just, peaceful and sustainable future, and Save the Children is working to promote the realisation of girls’ rights through programming and advocacy work for sustainable, systemic change.

Save the Children UK’s Women’s Network (as part of our female philanthropic global movement, ONE HUNDRED STRONG) was created to connect women who are passionate about gender equality, through inspiring events and exclusive learning and advocacy opportunities. And by committing financially to the new Girls’ Impact Fund, established exclusively for the Network, Members directly enable gender-based projects and programming. 

“We can achieve a lot together and we can challenge how people think of girls."
