Advances in girls’ education enable them to participate in and contribute to their societies and economies more broadly. Quality education also helps change their lives for the better. But a pervasive cycle of disparities faces girls in South Asia and threatens this realization.

Several studies have looked at the aspects influencing progress in girls’ education, including the series of UNGEI Issues Papers published by UNICEF ROSA.
