In solidarity with girls
Putting gender at the forefront of the COVID-19 education response
Especially in times of crisis, gender equality must not be sidelined
Youth are not only the beneficiaries of transforming education, they are essential partners. They are the transformers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, youth-led networks and organisations are mobilising and working together to transform education to help every child get a quality education, no matter who she, he or they are. They have demands that must be heard. They are leading the change. Will you join the mission?
Intergenerational dialogue series: Gender and education in crisis
School closures due to COVID-19 are impacting young people’s lives around the world. We also know that the pandemic is making gender inequalities worse. We are supporting youth to influence and meaningfully participate in the education response to COVID-19 through a series of intergenerational dialogues on gender and education in crisis.

In Solidarity With Girls: Blog series
UNGEI is collaborating with partners and allies to launch the ‘In Solidarity with Girls’ blog post series. This series will highlight the voices of young advocates, raise attention to the gendered impacts of this crisis and provide a space to reflect on how we, as a global community, can put gender at the heart of the COVID-19 education response and recovery.
Planning for safe school reopening is an opportunity to reduce barriers preventing girls’ return to school by:
- removing bans on re-entry for pregnant girls & young mothers
- providing school meals
- improving MHM facilities
Let’s stand #InSolidarityWithGirls & change the status quo
