The COVID-19 crisis offers a valuable opportunity to reassess the SDGs framework and ensure that women and girls are at the centre of its agenda.
Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) seeks to ‘ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5) has declared that we must ‘achieve gender equality and empower women and girls’.
Equal access to education is a right. Fulfilling this right is key to addressing some of the most pressing challenges of our time, from lack of health care to climate change and violence against women.
