On International Literacy Day, we celebrate the launch of a new policy brief series - In Solidarity With Girls: Gender and Education in Crisis - produced by the young women activists who led a series of intergenerational dialogues earlier this year. This publication represents a coordinated partnership approach to the meaningful inclusion of youth-led networks in the COVID-19 education response.
Launching today, the UNGEI partnership introduce a new common messaging framework ‘Putting gender at the forefront of the COVID-19 education response’. The publication aims to raise attention to the impact of school closures on women and girls and advocate for strategies to respond to the gendered dimensions of the education crisis while looking ahead through a gendered lens to the safe reopening of schools.
This month we are joining forces with partners to launch a series of intergenerational dialogues on gender and education in crisis. Through this series, global education leaders are engaging with youth as partners to understand how school closures are impacting young people’s lives as well as the innovative ways in which they are responding to this crisis.

This report estimates the global impact of depriving girls of education as well as showing how educational attainment can affect their life chances and choices, and the outcomes of this at an individual, family and community level. Its findings show the transformative power of education for girls in six areas: (1) earnings and standards of living, (2) child marriage and early childbearing, (3) fertility and population growth, (4) health, nutrition and well-being, (5) agency and decision-making, and (6) social capital and institutions. Findings indicate that limited educational opportunities for girls and barriers to completing 12 years of education cost countries between $15 trillion and $30 trillion dollars in lost lifetime productivity and earnings. The report also finds that primary education is not enough. Across many indicators, benefits from primary education only are limited.
