Today, we focus on the power of Education for Nonviolence and Gender Equality because education informs, empowers and liberates!
Did you know that worldwide up to 50 percent of sexual assaults are committed against girls under 16? Together we can help girls recognize and advocate for their rights. (For example, rights within relationships, rights to education, rights to freedom from violence, etc.) Join our Twitter Chat to talk about what girls’ education for non-violence and gender equality means to you!
