Girls’ rights in the UK – PLAN UK
A new report from PLAN International shows that too many girls in the UK don’t enjoy their rights. It ranks local authorities by child poverty, GCSE results, not being in employment, education or training, life expectancy and teenage conceptions, as well as drawing on interviews with 103 girls and 36 expert witnesses.
