Working document - Youth response to the Report of the Expert Group Meeting

"Every girl should get an education.” This was the key recommendation identified by 1,318 children and young people, from 59 countries and eight regions, who responded to a questionnaire, either through a focus group or an individual survey, on what can be done to eliminate discrimination and violence against the girl child. The questionnaire asked respondents to evaluate the findings in The Report of the Expert Group Meeting, the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination and Violence Against the Girl Child, and to offer their opinions on how to protect girls from violence and discrimination. This report, prepared as an appeal to the Members of the 51st Commission on the Status of Women, summarizes the ideas, concerns and recommendations of these children and young people.
