Substantial progress has been made in educating girls and young women in low- and middle-income countries over the last few decades. The 2020 GEM Gender Report estimated that 180 million more girls have enrolled in primary and secondary education since 1995.
The Young Lives study, which has been following the lives of 12,000 children in Ethiopia, India (Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), Peru and Viet Nam since 2001, has highlighted significant improvement in the educational attainment and performance of both girls and boys compared to their parents, despite the impact of persistent inequalities and gender disparities. Our latest survey, however, adds to the mounting evidence that COVID-19 could not only halt progress but also reverse important gains, hitting those living in poor communities hardest.
