Equal opportunites for girls (around the world)?

The risk of malnutrition before a child is five years old is three times higher in girls than in boys.

One in three girls do not finish primary school in the poorest countries.

This is because girls spend eight times as much time on domestic chores.

25,000 girls are married every day and cannot go to school because of it.

Pregnancy is the main cause of death in girls aged between 15 and 19.
