AU/CIEFFA& UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI)
Learning and resources on gender in education
Despite the accumulated efforts and commitments of the past 20 years, today’s women and girls continue to face gender-based barriers that prevent them from accessing and utilising technology and digital tools at the same level as boys and men. This briefing paper, Digital Empowerment of Girls, is prepared by Plan International. The briefing paper provides recommendations for closing the digital gender gap that will enable girls to participate in and contribute to our increasingly digital future.
