Facts About the Status of Girls

Let’s hear it for the for the girls – and women! Gender inequality is decreasing, sure, but when the global status of girls and women is taken into account, the picture looks a little less than rosy. But in the vein that knowledge is power, allow me to break down some of the facts about the status of girls and women around the world as we launch into a month of celebrating the AWESOMENESS of the female person!

1. Young girls and women make up a HUGE segment of the global population

There are 1.8 billion young people in the world – the majority of which live in developing countries – and approximately half of them are adolescent women or young girls. Yep, the kids are taking over – we currently have the largest generation of youth in global history.

2. Girls and women possess a huge amount of potential (duh!), but aren’t always afforded the opportunity to succeed

We all know that girls and women are just as capable as their male counterparts, but the sad truth is that women are largely marginalized, and often not prioritized in many development programs, according to the UN. Many development programs tend to benefit older, urban-based young boys and men – at a time when rural women in particular are in desperate need of increased services. This bias has to change! Because investing in girls and women isn’t simply a human rights imperative – it is one that strengthens the entire world as a whole.

3. Women are disproportionately affected by hunger and poverty

Here’s a scary statistic, but it’s important to know. Gender inequality is a major cause and effect of hunger and poverty – it is estimated that 60 percent of chronically hungry people are girls and women.

4. When we think about land-ownership, we don’t necessarily think about gender inequality, BUT…

Less than 20 percent of the world’s landholders are women. Women represent fewer than FIVE percent of all agricultural landholders in North Africa and West Asia, while in sub-Saharan Africa they make up an average of 15 percent. When people say it’s a man’s world, I didn’t realize I should take the idiom so seriously.

5. Women are being disproportionately impacted by lack of schooling

According to UNESCO, two-thirds of the 774 million illiterate people in the world are female. Again, a scary stat… education is so critical to the success and well-being of not only the individual, but families overall. Increased education is an absolute must for girls and women.

6. Education is critical in helping women to achieve higher wages and more autonomous lives

Education really has no downsides (well… maybe spelling tests…but I digress) – for every additional year of primary school, eventual wages of young girls are increased by 10-20 percent. It also encourages young women to marry later and have fewer children, and leaves them less vulnerable to violence.

7. Women’s education isn’t simply good for her smarts and job prospects, it’s good for her children too

According to UN data taken from 68 countries, it was found that women’s education is critical in helping increase a child’s survival rate. When a woman has an education, she often marries later, has fewer children, and earns more money – making the prospects for her kin better over their lifetimes.

8. Progress is being made with women’s education, but we still haven’t come far enough

Photo: Giphy | Blah… really!?

Okay, so it’s important to recognize that it isn’t all bleak – progress has been made in reducing the gender gap in urban primary school enrollment for young girls. BUT (and it pains me to hit you with some more depressing facts) UN data from 42 countries shows that rural girls are twice as likely as urban girls to be out of school.

9. Think income inequality has been solved? Think again

Photo: Giphy | Just… no

Men’s average wages are higher than women’s in both rural and urban areas. Rural women typically work longer hours than men, due to additional reproductive, domestic and care responsibilities. A lot of income inequality surrounds social norms – and flat out discrimination. It’s time for EVERYONE to realize that NOBODY benefits from women being compensated less than men.

10. Yup, Hillary may be running, but it doesn’t mean that women aren’t still marginalized when it comes to holding leadership positions

A large gender gap remains in women’s access to decision-making and leadership. While things have been improving regarding the status of women in leadership roles – the gains have been slow. Only 22 per cent of all national parliamentarians were female as of January 2015, a slow increase from 11.3 per cent in 1995.
