Make it Right: Ending the Crisis in Girls’ Education

The report “Make It Right: Ending the Crisis in Girls’ Education”, by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) and RESULTS, calls on the World Bank and International Monetary Fund to implement consistent policies to assist countries’ efforts to achieve gender equality in education.  The report notes that the 2005 Education for All goals of gender equality in enrollment have been missed, and that poverty, marriage, and sexual violence contribute to lower rates of enrollment for females. The authors stress the role that international financing institutions can play in addressing gender inequality. They urge the World Bank must make education operations gender-sensitive and the IMF to reduce its constraints on public spending, allowing countries to invest in girls’ education. Executing these changes will create further progress towards the 2015 Millennium Development Goal of gender equality in education.
