Un havre de paix

School-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) has devastating consequences for the lives of millions globally. Students testify to the way in which violence impacts their ability to get to and from school, to learn effectively while in school, and to remain there long enough to reap the benefits. Girls are particularly vulnerable to SRGBV, the repercussions of which can jeopardise health, lead to early and unwanted pregnancy, and keep whole families entrapped in the cycle of poverty. If the world is serious about delivering quality education that leaves no one behind, stepping up efforts to eradicate SRGBV must be a priority.
